Can't Put Laptop to Sleep?

Hey guys,

I just did a clean re-install yesterday of Windows 7 Home Premium on my HP laptop. The option to put my laptop to sleep is disabled, and will not show up on any of my power options.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks!

Filled in as many specs as I can--I did a clean re-install of Windows 7 64 bit following the instructions on this site, so I assume that my video drivers have been updated?

Thanks!

Do you have sleep mode and the other power options now?

Yes I do, my drivers were updated through Windows update. Should've been more patient--thanks for your help though!!!
