Ok that's good,
Listen I am going to have to leave you now as it is 2.30 in the morning, so we will have to continue this tomorrow, or maybe someone else will step in and install the other drivers with you, I am not saying that installing the other drivers will fix your problem, but it's no harm having them installed.
Good night.

I want to inform you one thing regarding Windows 7 64-bit you have to a custom installation because there is no upgrade path available for upgrading from 32-bit to 64-bit
The issue regarding sleep seems to have occurred because of display drivers are corrupted or power management is not configured properly

In the due course of time, if we find out that the issue is with the non-Microsoft hardware or software, you will have to contact them in this regard.

Hope the information provided will help you.
