Brand New MacBook Pro will not wake up from sleep

My brand new 15 inch MacBook Pro will not wake up from sleep if left for a period of time.

If i jiggle the mouse or touch a key, the keyboard will wake and light up if it is dark, I can see a cursor on the screen but the screen itself stays black. Sometimes the beachball spins but the screen never lights up unless I do a force quit.

I understand with El Capitan, you must depress the power switch to wake it from a deep sleep but unless I hold it long enough to do a force quit and restart, I cannot wake the computer. I am using ver. 10.11.2

Has anybody else experienced this problem?

Although it works for me, I have to do this on a fairly regular basis.

System Management Controller

Try resetting the SMC
