I had a very hard time making my computer start after this - hard power off by holding a button did not change anything - the next start was the same. Switching off the power supply on it's back and waiting did not help either. Then I rather removed the CMOS battery (because there is no clear CMOS jumper), switched off the power supply, disconnected power from the board and waited some minutes. This helped... and you know what? Windows woke from sleep - so it is definitelly a problem in motheboard or something. Not in the OS.
Yes there is a CMOS jumper, the three pins are there you would just have to plastic jumper from an old HD/CD/Floppy, thats what I did...
And what bios are you running?
It could be just about anything....
First, turn sleep mode off. If you want to shut ur PC off, then shut down. If not, running it 24/7 while may be a bit harsh on E bill is prolly the best thing for it, everytime it powers up, even from sleep mode its an electricl shock to the system..
Post back if you have this problem with sleep mode off... I have other suggestions then...
