I have a problem with my computers. It's mainly on my ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1215n Laptop, but other people I know have said that this happens to them too.

Sometimes when I wake up my laptop, it turns on and I can here the fan spinning around inside, but the screen stays black and my laptop has a CPU Light, and it does not flash as it normally does when it boots normally. As I noted, it only happens sometimes, and not on all my computers. My laptop has Windows 7 and Windows 8 and is dual bootable, and it happens on both operating systems.

Help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Try disabling the "S3" sleep mode in the BIOS. I can't promise it'll help but that kind of thing was sometimes problematic when Vista was new - it varied widely by manufacturer and even BIOS revision. If S3 was disabled, try enabling it instead. Also consider hibernation vs. sleep if you have the storage space. – Mark Allen Feb 9 '13 at 2:58

I just went into the BIOS and changed the S3 sleep mode setting. It is no longer doing this 'sleep bug' any more.
