So WTF is wrong with my computer!

ok I have a dell with all the works, its a 8400. when ever I turn it off and leave it off for a few hours then try to turn it back on it makes this "spinning" noise then nothing. I will press a button on my monitor and it says for a split second "in power save mode press any key to continue" I do and nothing happens. I will turn it off and on a few times then It will finally work. whats up with this?

Reset all of your power setting under the control panel.
