System hangs up after waking up from sleep mode

Just upgraded my desktop (HP e9150t) to Windows 7 (should have done clean install instead...) and the system often (but not every time) freezes up after coming out of sleep mode (never happened while running Vista).  Mouse and keyboard don't work (both are USB) therefore cannot do Ctr-Alt-Del, the only way out is hard reboot.

Did all standard things (updated drivers, BIOS, etc) but still no luck. any suggestions?


Welcome to Microsoft answers.

I suggest you to Check allow this device to wake the computer has a tick mark.

 Here are the steps:
1. Click Start, type Device manager in the search box.
2. Goto Device manager.
3. Click on keyboard, it will display your keyboard, right click and goto properties.
4. Select Power management.
5. Check Allow this device to wake the computer.
Follow the same procedure for mouse, restart the computer and check if it works properly.

I also suggest you to update your display drivers, you can logon to the manufacturers website and download the latest drivers and install.
