Viruses and malware
The viruses are malicious programs that enter your system in different ways. Viruses can enter your system via e-mails and instant messages. They may enter the hard drive of your system and cause errors. The registry is an important part of your system. The viruses cause corruption in the registry. The overloaded and corrupted registry can also be a reason for freezing under sleep mode. Thus you need to use an antivirus program to scan your computer's hard drive for any viruses or spyware.
Programs running in the background
The third party software in your system may result in freezing under sleep mode. The software that are not written by Microsoft are third party software. These programs may run on you system under sleep mode. Thus before putting your system on sleep mode, you need to close the third party software. Non responsive programs running in the background may also cause the issue of freezing.
If the system continues under sleep mode for 20 minutes then the hard disk may turn off. The default 'Power Management' option on Windows 7 Beta turns off the hard disk of your system. When the PC comes out of the sleep mode it may freeze. Thus you need to set the power options of the hard disk to never turn off.
