    The pagefile isn't deleted after a system crash, only emptied.

    I'd think more of a driver having issues with whatever its planning to do to the memory address.
    i was going to mention that too but the OP has not provided more detailed info from the event viewer for us to disseminate the problem better.

    So far I only unchecked the default setting "Automatically manage paging file size......".

    After that my PC woke up after sleep 3 times without any issues.
    I will give it more time and will report back.

    Thank you for all your help,

    I know there are also components out there that just dont like coming back up after going to sleep. Sometimes this can be due to drivers or the components themselves, most likely the video hardware. I would check that all the driver are up to date and also do some searching on google for these issues with your specific system.

    What is the model number of your XPS machine?

    The problem is back - freezing after sleep. Dell Studio XPS 8000, i5, RAM 8-gig. I ran Dell diagnostics tool and it did not find any hardware issues. But I have a suspicion that maybe RAM is causing this or one of the slots has an issue. If it has 2 sticks I will try to remove one at a time and see if the issue continues. Does it matter what RAM slots I use, do they need to be in some order....?

    Yes, and I would also download memtest86 and burn it to a CD/DVD or a USB and boot from that and use it to see if your RAM has issues. Let it run for at least 3 passes before you end it.
