If you can restart it and it starts up fine, then I would go into the power settings and disable sleep mode. Every computer is different on how to wake a sleeping computer, so you could read through your manuals and find out for yours, but I just disable sleep mode on all computers so i dont have to hassle with it.

Are you saying that your computer keeps going into standby? You can change your power management settings to whatever you like in your control panel power options. Tell it not to go into standby, hibernate, or anything you don't want.

Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.
As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.
Hope this helps.

One possibility is if you have an optical/laser mouse that is on a relective surface and the mouse light is reflecting and triggering the computer to think that there is activity.
More than likely, your network card is keeping your computer from staying in sleep mode as any internet data activity is taking the computer out of sleep mode making the computer think there is activity.
There is an option in the Network Adapter properties that says to "Allow this device to wake up your computer"
Go to Control Panel and click Classic View on the left hand side
Double Click the Network and Sharing Centre Icon.
On the left hand side of the window that opens, click Manage Network Connections.
Right Click on the connected Network Connection. It is probably the Local Area Connection. Right click on it and choose Properties
A new box will open up. Click the Configure button under the Connect Using: box
Click the last tab at the top that says Power Management.
Under the Power Management tab click the square box that is beside: Allow this Device to Wake the Computer to take the checkmark out of the box. Then Click OK at the botton and close all the windows.
Let the computer go into Sleep mode and see if the computer still comes out of sleep mode on its own.
Let me know if this worked for you,
