I'm running WXP Home on a Dell Inspiron 4150 laptop. It's in use off and on about 18 hours a day, so I don't shut it down, but just close the top to put it into 'sleep mode'.

Recently, it's starting locking up instead of sleeping, giving me just a black screen with no way to restart. Hitting Crl/Alt/Dlt does nothing, and there isn't a restart button, so the only thing I know to do is pull the battery pack and the power cord, wait, then reconnect. Not good for any computer.

Any ideas?
