My friend is having a problem. She is using the Windows 7 operating system, and when she closes the lid, the computer goes to sleep fine. The problem, however, is when the lid is opened, it won't return from sleep unless she presses the power button again. Does anyone know how to solve this? Thanks

    I wish I had this same problem, but my wife keeps flipping my lid, and pushing my buttons till I wake up... – TheXed Oct 26 '12 at 18:00

There is an option under the power settings "What to do when lid closes", you can tell it not to power off I believe, more information can be found here: link It is probably going into hibernation mode after a while.
