My guess would be overwatering. Do you allow the soil to dry out before you water your Peace lily? http://www.thegardenhelper.com/peacelily.htm

That is what I was going to say also. Are the leaves turning brown and getting dry?? I always have problem with mine getting like that around this time of year. First the leaves get droopy and then they start to turn brown. If your house is dry, you may need to mist the plant twice a day so it can retain it's moisture. The peace lily likes higher humidity and misting it will help.

But sometimes the leaves drop over when it needs water.

I always wait till my leaves start to droop before I give my peace lily water. This way I don't get so many brown tips on my leaves.

Now to get it to bloom again, that seems to be quite a chore.

rosepetal, they bloom better when they are rootbound. so if you have put it in a bigger pot, let it go back to the smaller one.
