Windows 7 Freezes on bootup

I have a new ASUS laptop, 4gb RAM, 64bit with Windows 7 pre-installed. I leave it in sleep mode when not in use, so I don't know if this is a new problem or it has been this way all along.

If I restart, or boot all the way off and boot up again, Win 7 will freeze 75% of the time. It usually requires 3 cold boots before it finally loads. I noticed this yesterday after installing some updates from MS. I thought it was the updates so I restored to an earlier config and I was still having the same problem.

Sometimes it will boot just fine, but more often than not, it hangs.

Any clues?
