Computer does not boot up properly after entering sleep mode

I usually put my computer to sleep if I'm not going to be using it for a while and I wake it up by pressing something on my keyboard or mouse. Has not been an issue until a few days ago but now when I try to wake my computer, it does not respond to my mouse or keyboard. I try to wake it from buttons on my computer case and the computer turns on but my screen is black and I get a message that no signal is detected. After about 10 seconds, the computer just turns off by itself and does not boot up. I would have to repeat this process several times before it FINALLY boots up and it goes to my desktop as it was when I originally put it to sleep (does not boot up as if I restarted my computer). I've checked to make sure that my keyboard and mouse are able to wake my computer in device manager and I also have the "put the computer to sleep after x amount of time" set to Never as well.

Any ideas what could be causing this or how to fix it?

This only started happening recently and I did not change or upgrade any hardware. Was never an issue before so I don't know whats going on.

    I'm not sure of the cause of the issue....and this is the problem I have with sleep mode. From what I have seen of "sleep mode" over many years....is that it causes problems.....just like it has caused you problems....and they are very difficult problems to diagnose.
