Computer Sleepmode Problem

  1. I have an HP Pavilion Slimline s3600f. When I put the computer into sleepmode, I face a problem. I can't get the computer to get out of sleepmode. The only way to get it back is to turn off the computer with the power switch on the surge protector. I checked the hardware settings of my mouse and my keyboard and they are enabled to wake the computer out of sleep mode. I don't know what's wrong. What should I do?

    Do you have all the Microsoft Updates installed, and Service Pack 3?
    If so, I would then defragment process.
    You have likely found some problems, either from an infestation, or the sudden failures.
    You would likely benefit from running the 8-step malware removal process found elsewhere on TechSpot, just to rule out an infestation.
