Go into "Control Panel" then "Power Options". I am not on a laptop now, but there should be an option in that area that "Choose what to do when lid closes", or something to that effect. I will check tonight on my laptop if you don't find it before then.

The sleep function is controlled by the videodrivers. Update those or go back to an older version to see if it fixes your "no wake" issue.


Since I am on a laptop, here is the area that bigmck wanted you to check:

Laptop will not wake from sleep-power2.png

I'm not saying to duplicate the settings shown above...
...I'm just showing the screens that bigmck described.

You might try:
...changing those settings to something else
...close the power settings window
...re-open the power settings window
...change the settings back to the desired state
...close the power settings window again
...and test to see if sleep/wake works as desired.
