Windows 7: s3 sleep mode...

ok, im not that computer savvy, if you explain to me how to post the event logs i will do so. Also one relevant comment to make is that I have wake timers set to enable in power management and id rather not disable them because I want virus, spyware scans, etc. to be able to wake the comp. to perform maintenance. But like i said earlier it doesn't seem like the computer is ever automatically going into standby on its own.

I'm looking in event viewer and am not really sure where i should be looking for these errors. If you can tell me how I will post the event log on here.

Open up eventvwr.msc, right-click the "System" log (under Windows Logs), and use the "Save all events as" to save the log file as an .evtx file. This file can then be uploaded somewhere and linked here for analysis.

I was looking at last night, and your system (for many hours) attempts to sleep (and actually does), but within a minute or two keeps getting woken up by the Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller device, and "Power Button". So, unless you're also waking it at night, it's probably your network card driver.

should i just re install the network card driver? I don't want to disable wake on lan as i plan on using that in the near future.

Well, if you have it set to wake on LAN, it will "wake" . It couldn't hurt to update to a new driver, but I can't guarantee that it will resolve anything. It's worth making sure you've got the latest versions, though. If you don't currently need it to be able to wake the machine, you can modify it's ability to do so as well:

Ok, well some updates. I re installed the nic card and modified the nic card wake on lan setting to only wake on a magic packet. Also I changed a setting in power options to allow computer to sleep when sharing media. However computer still failed to go to sleep when I left it on overnight. Is there anything else I can do. I had s3 sleep/hibernate working well a few months ago but had to format the comp. and now it doesn't work at all.

I have resolved this issue and will mark it as solved. There is an option in bittorent that prevents the computer from entering sleep mode when there are active torrents. Computer now sleeps automatically per the settings I have configured for it. It also appears not to freeze upon waking as it did before. Thanks everyone for you help.
