HP Pavilion Sleep Mode

I just purchased and installed the HP Pavilion p6654y desktop.  When this machine goes into sleep mode, i cannot wake it up except by a hard boot.  Moving the mouse, pushing the power button once, keyboard key entry...none of these things work...any help with this would be appreciate.


And in the settings, I thought I turned off the sleep mode (by telling it to never go to sleep).

Disable Screen Saver:

Click Start , and then click Control Panel .

Click Appearance and Personalization .

Under Personalization, click Change screen saver .

In the Screen saver section, select an alternate screen saver or set it to (None) and then click OK .


Check if the issue has fixed, if not, contact HP Chat Support to find and install BIOS update for the PC, if BIOS Update is not available, perform MSCONFIG steps to disable unnecessary applications running at Startup.
