If the battery runs down completely while a notebook is in sleep mode, the notebook will shutdown completely (hopefully saving any open documents first). You then typically have to press and hold the power button for a few seconds for it to boot.

Make sure you battery is charging.

And did you look at your Power Options to see what happens when it goes to sleep? It may be set to power off.
