Windows 7: PC restarts instead of sleeping

PC restarts instead of sleeping

I have tried the various options and tips from Google searches and on here but all to no avail. When selecting sleep mode, the PC seems like it's preparing to sleep then just at the point it should be sleeping it restarts itself! It was working fine then one day it just started behaving like this. To my knowledge no new software was installed on the PC and the settings have not been changed.

The OS is Windows Pro 7 32bit.
Are you able to help or advise me on this problem?

Laptop Not Sleeping
I changed the setting to not sleep when I close the lid while plugged in, however whenever I do press the sleep button on the start menu and close the lid, the laptop boots up again. Would this be a windows error that needs re installation, or is it a hardware issue? Thanks in advance
