Windows 7: I Finally Got My New Rig Sleep Automatically!

I Finally Got My New Rig To Sleep Automatically!

I'm embarrassed that it took three days to figure out how to allow my computer to sleep automatically. The powercfg -requests command proved invaluable. It turned out to be a high definition audio driver that was prohibiting my machine to go into sleep mode automatically. I updated driver and everything is peachy, except:

If I "manually" go into sleep mode, the computer goes to sleep except the power supply and fans continue to run. When it goes to sleep automatically, it does so properly without the power supply and fans running. I don't get it?
