    laptop crashes in sleep mode

    Hi,
    Ive had my laptop 3 months, An Acer travelmat 5720G. Always been fine until
    the last 2 days, when I close the lid or hit the sleep button it enters sleep
    mode as it should but will not wake up, the power light remains on but what
    ever I do It doesnt wake. I have to hold power button down the cut the power
    and reboot. Ive checked the power options and reloaded their default settins
    but nothing works! Please help!

    The hybrid sleep feature and the hibernation feature in Windows Vista may
    become unavailable after you use the Disk Cleanup Tool :

    Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Accessories.
    2. Right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you
    are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the
    password, or click Continue.
    3. Type powercfg -h on, and then press ENTER.

    Go to Advance Power Settings.

    Set hard drive to turn off a minute or 2 before sleep.

    Set Hybrid and Hibernate modes to "Never"

    Under USB settings select "Disable"

    Under Multimedia select "Allow ....."
