Windows 7: Wont Auto Sleep

24 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit Retail
Wont Auto Sleep

Prior to SP1, W7 would go into sleep mode after 2 hours. Now, the screens shut off but the computer is not in sleep mode. I can hit the sleep button and it will sleep but no auto sleep. I've reset all parameters that I could find to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Dear bobland,
When the computer screen turns off, is the power button(on your cabinet) in "off" mode or is it still glowing? If you are using a Blue tooth mouse and keyboard that can lead to your kind of prob. Try borrowing a hard-wired mouse and keyboard and you "should" see the difference! Peruse this useful tutorial : Hibernate - Enable or Disable

Grand Theft Auto 4 - Install Wont Start
The install won't start because it says it is incompatible with %P. I'm guessing that means Windows 7. If anyone has found a workaround let me know. Crashes in compatibility mode every time I try by the way.
