No problem - I know about ignorance very well, first hand

From an elevated command prompt check for powercfg requests with this command:
powercfg -requests

Someone else had similar issues in this thread ...
Sleep mode stopped occurring automatically

Well then requests isn't your problem.
From an elevated command prompt use this command to get a report.
powercfg -energy

Post the report and I'll look at it and see if I can find anything.
You may have to save the report to somewhere like the desktop before you can copy/paste it ...
Been a while since I used a energy report, and I'm on Win8 right now.
