Check the 'hibernate' mode. It should be somewhere in the panel.

I think the pc is going to hibernate mode. If the pc goes into hibernate mode then a hard reboot is the only option. That is the new power saving mode these days. can cause some inconvience though.

Also check your power (ACPI) settings.
