    ive been having this for a while now. Whenever i put my laptop to sleep i can't get it back up and running, and have to shut it down and boot it up again. I usually simply never put it to sleep for this reason but really want to solve it and know what the problem is. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Have you tried pressing the power button briefly?

    none of those buttons work, the only thing for me to do is hold down the power button until it shutdowns and then turn it back again. Any other ideas what it can be?
