Windows 7 Enterprise

When I sleep, my PC does these three options on various intervals...

Sleeps...(Happy...I think)
Creates Nanomachines...(Would kill me for that if it could)

Mine just sit there waiting for me to move the mouse so they can serve me. They all love me unconditionally.

Windows 7 build 7600 64 bit

Mine is offline, I don't put it to sleep often, because it failed to wake up many times (and so it required a restart anyway, so normal boot is faster, it never failed to boot that way).

When wife and me are both home, Pamela sleeps in my study doing some odd backups before going to sleep. When wife's away or I'm on the road alone, Pamela sleeps with me, normally singing quietly something with Joe Cockers or Leonard Cohens voice.
