keyboard and mouse stop functioning when mysi

Specs: Windows Vista
Dell with Vista. This problem just started a few days ago. When computer sits idle for more than about 15 minutes and goes into "sleep" mode, the keyboard and mouse stop functioning. After a hard shutdown (have to do this or can't restart) the mouse and keyboard resume working.

if it's a tower I'm wondering why you even use sleep mode? It is meant mainly for laptops.
I set everything to never and choose a screensaver on mine...never have problems

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
