Aspire one with windows XP. Won't turn back on while in sleep mod

I have an acer aspire one with windows XP. If I let it sit for roughly 5 minutes it goes into sleep mode and I can't turn it back on after that (the screen is black but the computer is still on). The only way I turned the screen back on was taking out the battery and putting it back in.

    also happens when I close the lid, which goes into sleep mode and the reopen it later. The green power light is on the power switch but it won't come out of sleep mode.

I've had spotty luck with Windows and sleep or hibernate modes. I would suggest just disabling sleep/hibernate mode. The options can be found under the control panel under power options. While turning off the sleep mode won't help your battery life, if you ask me, it beats having to power off the laptop by pulling the battery out. If you don't want to turn it off, you can try adjusting the amount of time it lets pass before it goes to slee.

Put to sleep won't wake up just a black screen

Disconnect from the power supply and then remove the battery. Wait a minute or so and hook up the power supply with the battery out. Turn the system on. Often this will reset the system. If not, let me know and we'll go from there.

I do this for fun and feed back not $$$

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.

Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.
