    Vista gets stuck in sleep mode

    Hello everyone,
    I have Vista Home edition on my Compaq computer. Everytime I hit the sleep button, the computer goes to a black screen but does not come out when you move the mouse or hit the keyboard. The only way to get the computer unstuck is to unplug it. I have disabled the hibernation mode but this has not help either. I have updated the computer on a weekly basis but this has not helped.
    Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Run through the diagnostics in my sig and upload your system specs. Then update your drivers with the new info of your hardware. Just google the manufacturer.
