When the computer is left to go into snooze mode, it does not always wake up. Sometimes takes a few minutes. My Wallpaper comes up, but no icons for any of the desktop items. Seems if I bang the keys for a while it comes back on. Ctrl-Alt-Del does nothing.

What make and model system do you have?
Have you updated the video drivers recently?

eMachine T6420, with a LG L1920P monitor. Nothing new with the video driver. Maybe I should reload them? It does not do this all the time, seems to be more prone to it the longer it is off. Only thing done recently, hardware wise, was adding a Gig more RAM and replacing the power supply. I was told the power supply was prone to failure and did that as a preventive measure.

Download the latest drivers for your video card from here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_169.21_whql.html
Double click on the downloaded file to install them - then just follow the prompts.

Updating video drivers solves most issues related to hibernation/sleep - and it's far easier to do than the rest of the troubleshooting! :thumbsup:

Good luck!
