PC stays in Sleep Mode and Keyboard and Mouse doesn't work
Well the title pretty much sells the deal on what my problem is. Two days ago I put my PC on sleep basicly and when I wanted to get back at it, it wouldnt do anything... I closed my PC by doing a reset, and basicly now my monitor won't turn on just the light flashs, my keyboard and mouse start up when I press on the ON button but after that there is nothing that's happening.

Re: PC stays in Sleep Mode and Keyboard and Mouse doesn't...
Well that's kind of a loaded question.
There is several things that can cause this to happen.
1. The CPU died because the cpu fan just died and burnt it out.
2. The Ram is bad which I doubt.
3. Somthing happend and burnt out the motherboard sometimes we get insects that climb inside our computer and go onto things and alot of stuff in the computer that can be grounded by a bug or whatever and burn out our computer I've had it happen before.
The monitor is fine it's just blinking because it's not getting a signal from the P.C.
You can try to unplug the PC and plug it back in and try again or even check in the back on the power supply there is a I/O switch make sure it's on.

You should be able to just press the main system unit power button to wake up your 'sleeping' computer which will then resume your Windows desktop and bring you back to the Login panel if you have a password set for your account.
Connect the monitor to some other computer, e.g., a notebook, and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then the monitor is the problem.
If it does not, then your computer is not putting-out any "video" signal, and so the monitor goes to "sleep".
If you have MORE than one VGA-output port on your computer, connect your monitor to the "other" VGA port.
Or, press-and-hold the ON/OFF button on your computer, to force it to completely shutdown.
The PC comes back out of the sleep mode by input from the keyboard, mouse, or if it's configured in the BIOS, by the network card. If you are connected to other PC's, the network card might constantly be passing info back and forth throughout the network and then it won't remain in the sleep mode. First thing I'd do is check if there is a setting in the BIOS which makes the PC come out of sleep mode by the network card.
The mouse and keyboard can also be pretty hyper. You can sometimes just sit in front of your PC and blow air onto your mouse or keyboard and the PC reacts. Therefore, if you have your PC in a room with a slight draft, it might help to keep the doors & windows closed. Any small vibration may do the job, so make sure the table isn't on top of something that vibrates, even if ever so slightly.
