can't wake up my laptop after closing the lid!?

I have an HP laptop, not yet a year old and midway through the day yesterday it started being weird. When I shut the lid, the computer goes to sleep mode, usually when I open the lid it turns back on, or wakes up. It isn't doing this anymore and I now have to actually remove the battery and unplug the computer for a few seconds, it's the only thing that sees to work now. Obviously when I do this, upon turning the computer back on, I have to go through the whole "windows did not shut down properly" thing. Any Ideas why this might be happening and how to fix it? I have an extended warranty at future shop, but they just wipe the computer clean and that isn't what I need, I think I will back everything up anyways though. Any ideas would be appreciate, and don't hesitate to dumb it down...I can follow instructions, but I'm not the most computer friendly person, so please, step by step instructions needed. Thanks!
