PC shuts down when coming out of sleep mode

I built this box about 2 years ago and it was running perfect until about last week.

When the PC goes into sleep mode and I try to awaken with the mouse or keyboard stroke the harddrives turn on but the display screen is blank and the OS won't come on. I also notice that the light on my netgear router goes from amber to blank. Normal sleep mode is amber and when the OS comes on it glows green. It seems that coming out of sleep mode shuts down my OS's power.

I have to do a hard re-boot and and then the screen comes on and says "Resuming Windows"

Do I need to re-load Win 7 or is this a motherboard issue? I was unable to use sytem restore to fix this.
