Default Computer doesn't want to wake up.

Ok, so here's the deal. whenever I leave my computer on and it goes idle and shuts the monitor off I can't turn it back on without a reboot. It will turn on if it only turned off a few minutes ago but after an hour or so it won't come back. Anybody have a clue as to what this might be?

go to decive manager then find your mouse > right click it and click properties > click power managment tab and make sure that the "allow this decive to take the computer out of standby" is checked
