Win 7 Not Sleeping when a Imac is running near by!

Hey guys, Ive been having this issue with my Win 7 computer not sleeping a lot and I think I found the problem! My wife has an imac on the same network and when her system is up and running I run CMD and POWERCFG -REQUESTS and I get the " FILE\SYSTEM\SRVNET an active remote client has recently sent requests to this machine"

And thats when the WIN 7 system wont sleep! I tied to not allow srvnet and that didn't work, I changed from home network to work network, I shut off HOME SHARING etc etc and when she is on her imac MY system wont sleep! We also shut off sharing on the imac!

ANY HELP would be APPRECIATED!

Thanks!

From an elevated command prompt you can override a request with the POWERCFG -REQUESTSOVERRIDE command.
See this tutorial by Brink for help with this command:

Can you copy the the text from the CMD window and paste the text into a reply in this thread?
The text needs to be exact for this command, and it's too easy for me to make a typo looking at just a screen print...

Here is a screen print of what I SEE for the requests on MY system:

Here is one way to copy the CMD window text:
Click on the icon in the upper left of the CMD window, click Edit, click Select All. (see screen print below)
Then
Click on the icon in the upper left of the CMD window, click Edit, click Copy.

You should now be able to paste the CMD text into a SF post, notepad, etc...

The command for me to override the Realtek request is:
POWERCFG -REQUESTSOVERRIDE DRIVER "Realtek High Definition Audio (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0885&SUBSYS_1458A002&REV_1001\4&174ede36&0&0001)" System

when it pops up again ill post the pic of the cmd window here! Since I turned off ALL sharing and file sharing etc etc in netowork and sharing it hasnt popped up again! When you do the OVERRIDE will it always HOLD after a reboot? Also when you do the overrride will it ALWAYS show up when you run cmd, POWERCFG -REQUESTS?

Yes, the override holds after a reboot.
Yes, the requests still show up after an override.
To see your overrides use this command (no parameters):
POWERCFG -REQUESTSOVERRIDE

This is what I get when I do POWERCFG -REQUESTSOVERRIDE
