My PC's sleep to shutdown problem

When I put my desktop to sleep and come back to try and turn it back on, there is no video output and it does nothing. Then I have to cut the power and have it restart. Is there anyway to fix this?

Before putting the pc in sleep mode shutdown any open progs.

So that you back at a clean desktop with a minimum of stuff running.
