Click Start, and then click Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance>Power Options>In the Power Options Properties dialog box, on the Power Schemes tab, click the Power schemes drop-down list and select the power scheme that most closely matches how you use your computer.
adjust the System standby and System hibernates settings if you are not happy with the default selection. On the Advanced tab, you can adjust the default behavior of the power buttons on your computer. Click Apply>OK
Try running the performance & maintenance option under the control panel. First run a disk cleanup. When that has finished run the system defragmenter. When this is completed reboot and see if your problem is corrected. Hope this helps.
