Windows 7 crashes when I put it to sleep?

Hey guys, I don't have a screen shot on me at the moment, but here's the story.

When I try and put my computer on sleep mode, it sometimes crashes and gets a blue screen where it says something about a memory dump.

Just FYI: This doesn't happen all the time.

Is there some reason why it does this? It seems like the RAM loses all the data that it is holding on to when the computer goes to sleep and just crashes. After getting the blue screen, the only thing you can do is turn off the computer.

Any ideas? If you need me to, I can try and get a picture of the crash, but I'm scared it will damage my computer if I run into it too many times :/

Thank you.
