I have been facing this problem for about 2 months now.
When my computer goes to sleep or hibernate, It tries to sleep or hibernate, but after 15 seconds, the display is black, and the power led is on continuously, like its running on the background. i can hear the fan running if i take my head near to laptop. When this is happening the capslock is blinking. It blink in a following pattern.
5 single blinks, and then 3 quick blinks.
Total of 8 blinks altogether and then it repeats again.
This doesn't happen when I turn on the laptop, as most of the problems i saw on this forum, seems to be that of when turning on. it turns on flawlessy. this only happens sometimes when it is trying to go to sleep/hibernate.
This first happened the day after, when I enabled Hybrid Sleep in Windows Advanced Power Options. and it happened for several days again, after which I disabled Hybrid Sleep. After that, it is still happening at unknown interval, especially when the computer goes to sleep after inactivity.
The main reason this is so confusing is, most of the time the computer goes to sleep/hibernate successfully. This happens like once or twice in 2-3 days. Sometimes it happens several times a day.
