    Unresponsive(dead) After shut down For Random Time

    After shutting down, putting my computer to sleep, or shutting the lid, My computer becomes entirely unresponsive. The power button does nothing, the lights to indicate it is plugged in are dark, the computer seems to be dead. After a random period of time, ranging from 1 to 9 hours, It comes back to life as if nothing had happened. It seems to be similar to the Hibernation/Sleep problems but significantly magnified. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Ok the system is now back operational. Going through the system event log
    Event 1074 carried out by User32 to shutdown is followed 7 seconds later by event ID 42 Source Kernel-Power with the description
    The system is entering sleep.

    Sleep Reason: Application API
    I belive this to be the problem or a key variable to uncovering the problem
