Question: MacBook Pro sleep issue

My early 2015 MacBook Pro does strange things after I wake it from sleep. Sometimes the screens stay black and doesn't respond. I have tried moving the mouse, hitting keys on the keyboard, even pressing the power button and nothing happens, so I have to reboot. Other times the screen will turn on but none of the programs are responsive but the mouse does move, and the only way to fix it is to reboot.

This all started after my computer froze the other day and when I tried to reboot it I got the flashing question mark. So I went into disk utility and my HDD wasn't there. So I reset the SMC, and it booted normally. I did have this problem a few months back and took it into an Apple authorised service centre and they said there was nothing wrong with the drive, and even when I run disk utility it says there is nothing.

I have tried everything. I have reset the SMC again, nothing still happening. I have also reset the NVRAM again nothing. Also did a fresh install of High Sierra with no luck.

Is there anything anybody else can think of?

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch,Early 2015), macOS High Sierra (10.13.4), null

Nevermind that didn't solve my problem, I guess I just never let the MacBook actually get to a full sleep cycle before posting.

I turn opened the lid this morning and it wouldn't turn on. Screen was black and unresponsive, the power button couldn't even get it to wake up.

When I booted it back up I did it safe mod, this time. When got to the login screen there was a bit of screen tearing which I haven't seen before and there was more after I entered my password. I don't know if this is normal or not.
