I have a brand new W510 (2 weeks old). Ever since using it I have found that intermittently when I close the lid (and put the computer into sleep mode), when I open the lid, it restarts the machine and all opened files are closed.
The last time it did this the laptop would not restart with 'unidentified operating system' errors etc. When I did a hard reboot, all was fine.
I'm worried this is going to continue and cause damage to the machine.
Any help much appreciated.

Does it happen immediatley after closing the lid? Or does it crash right as you open the lid? In other words, is it sleeping peacefully until this happens or does it happen right after it tries to go to sleep?

Yeah, pay close attention. My W510 would crash immediately after I shut the lid, resulting in it restarting, so when I opened the lid I saw windows hadn't shut down correctly. Turns out, my wireless mouse was waking the computer up immediatley after it went to sleep, making it crash. Solved the issue by not letting the mouse turn the computer on.
