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.
