IS your computer in sleep mode?

Question

it seems to be in a sleep mode. compaq comes up on screen, and then states Operating system no found on any devices. Press spacebar to continue. Even the restore disk won't work off the cd rom. The emergency start up disk will allow it to start and go to C: . but it won't let me format, delete or nothing? it doesn't show to have a windows directory either? the sleep button on the keyboard is lite and won't respond .
