    For some weird reason out of nowhere, my computer can't come out of sleep mode. If it does go into sleep mode, my PC is frozen and I am unable to do anything. The computer is still running as it would be regularly though with all of the fans running and everything.

    Aside from the sleep mode problem, my PC runs fine, I just had to turn it off so it does not go to sleep.

    This what happens, it goes into sleep mode. I am forced to restart witht he power button. I turn it on then it still doesn't respond and my cpu fan is revved up very high. I shut it off again and windows resumes my last session that I had before sleep mode.

    Hello BigG123..


    Have you checked your power settings when the PC is up and running?
    Also when is the last time you clean the inside out with can air?

    I am going to open your thread for more input..

    Is there any program that I could check my power setting with? And I recently just took the case off and cleaned it, so it isn't a dust problem...

    How old your BIOS Firmware is ? Some old BIOS Firmware have issues with Sleep. Sometimes upgrading the firmware used to fix it.
