Problems with sleep feature on Fedora 14 KDE

I am having a real annoying issue with my new Fedora 14 KDE dual boot system. Sometimes when I click on leave and then the sleep option it goes to sleep perfectly. However, about every other time it instead goes to the loading Fedora screen that just has the logo and freezes. When it does that no keys I press do anything, I end up having to turn off the laptop and re-turn it on to get it restarted. Thankfully this isn't Windows so rebooting doesn't to long, but it is still an annoyance does anybody know why this is happening. Also what command can I use to check what apps are handling my power management options, I know Power Devil is one, but I think I may have downloaded another one too when I was attempting to obtain the additional packages I thought I wanted or needed that didn't get automatically installed from my livecd installation. Thank you in advance for your help, this is one thing I truly do enjoy about using a Linux system, the ability to get support like this, it makes me feel like I'm part of a community.. Hopefully I can learn more about Linux so I can also help others in the future.

If you are able to get a command-line using ctrl-alt-f1 and to return to the gui press alt-f6 or alt-f8 its just the X server crashing on you.

Usually, I will use the kill command for X server so it restarts itself. I wonder if ctrl-alt-backspace works to restart the X server?
