Windows 7: Can't enter sleep mode properly.

21 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Can't enter sleep mode properly.

When I enter sleep mode, I see the savings power note on the screen and the computer makes the shutting down noise. However, the computer stays on. I can't enter out of that "sleep" state without hard powering off.

This only started yesterday. I did a system restore, but the problem persists. I couldn't find a crash log; there's nothing in the minidump folder.
