Why is my laptop acting strange? Halp

It takes a long time to turn back on from sleep mode (about 5-10 min). The screen is black, but the buttons are lit and I can hear the fans. Eventually the welcome screen will come up and everything is normal from there. Computer is fast, no glitching,etc. Also, I should mention that my caps lock light and number lock light flash every 4 seconds. Maybe that has some importance. Thanks for helping

For computer diagnostics in general, I strongly recommend the following:

Test the memory using something like MemTest86+ or Windows memory diagnostic

test the hard drive using a utility like SpinRite

Check CPU & GPU temps

Update the BIOS and Drivers

Reset the CMOS

If it is a laptop, disconnect power & battery and hold power button for 30 sec.
