Ok, so you click on Sleep to put it into sleep mode, rather than clicking a lid?
You will need to follow the above steps, but ignore the questions about a lid.
You will need to follow your previous process to drain the power and boot it up normally again to fix the power settings.
Unfortunately there is no faster way around this, however once you get the power settings fixed it will no longer be a problem.
