Windows 7 Sleep Function

I put this on the wrong forum, so here it is on the correct one. Lately the Del Desktop PC with Windows 7 64 bit refuses to come out of sleep when it has been left for a period of hours. When I manually send it to sleep it does so and the mouse and keyboard are set to revive it. It revives as it should do if I move the mouse or hit a key. However whenever I leave it asleep for a long period such as several hours, it refuses to awake and I have to force a reboot with the power button. That produces the black screen which you get after a crash. Any ideas what might cause it to revive after a short period of sleep but not after a long period? I have changed nothing except that I have applied Windows updates.

Yeah This function is very good, If you will do single click,then there will be option, and it will get in sleep mode.

Yes Windows 7 is good and sleep function is good but not for all the time, if you can set them all the time, it harms your computer, but for Windows 7 it doesn't effect so much.
