It's a known sleep/hibernation issue with Windows 7. First thing to try is turning on updates and installing them all. They did release a few updates that were supposed to fix it. You can also look to see if a new bios has been released for your specific computer. The only other thing is to disable sleep and hibernate mode and shut down each time. There are many other "fixes" out there that may or may not work. If you do a search on Windows 7 can't run programs after sleep, you will see a ton of results and articles. Try a couple of things and let us know if you are still having issues.

Try changing your behavior. There is no real need to keep your computer on for days at a time. Turn the sleep mode entirely off and reboot once a day.
Note on SSD drives. I have a new HP Spectre, the first tie I have had an SSD drive exclusively. It boots in ten seconds flat. Call me impressed.

Turning on updates is not going to happen.
I had to turn them off as the computer search for updates ran...and ran....and ran.
Updates did not install...they kept failing.
Desktop Manager seems to be running about half....or less, as in 500K versus 1500K....that is the one thing I did notice.
