Desktop PC freezes after sleep mode

Good Day, I just replaced my hard drive in Win 7 Desktop. I restored all the programs and updates, but if I walk away and let the PC go into sleep mode, the PC "locks up" and I have to manually power it down and when it boots back up, I have to go through the BIOS screen to get back to Windows? Any suggestions? I do have HDD as the first option in BIOS. Thanks much
