I am running Windows XP. Ever since I got this computer about 6 months ago I have had this problem. I leave it on 24/7 and it goes into sleep mode after two hours. I don't have a problem "waking" it after a few hours in sleep mode but many times when I get up at 6am when it has been in sleep mode say for 8 to 10 hours it is totally locked up I can not even turn it off or on from the tower. I actually have to pull the power plug and do it that way. I continually set the power settings to no avail. I have the screen saver set to kick in after 30 minutes and the monitor, hard disks and system standby to shut down after 2 hours. I don't know why it acts this way.
