Try disabling sleep mode for the lid being closed - goto control panel/power options/choose what closing the lid does..'do nothing' is the preferred option unless you have reason to sleep/hibernate the device.

You might also try selecting Hibernate instead of sleep.
Another thing to try would be to update the BIOS.

The HP's have had an issue with Sleep & Hibernate, since XP Service Pack 3 came out. All you can do when you are finished doing something, is just do a shut down. Hibernate does not play well with the majority of systems out there, so it is suggested to just disable. Sleep only works on certain computers, so it is again a take at your own risk.
As for the temps. There are some HP's, just like Dell's, that have a nasty habit of blowing solder joints, when they start getting too hot. There was a recall on certain HP laptops a couple of years ago, due to bad solder jobs on the motherboards, which were causing the power plug to overheat and melt the male plug from the cord.
