Windows 7: Error - CryptSvc prevents system standby - Urgent!

Error - CryptSvc prevents system standby - Urgent!

Hello everyone,

When I run the command: powercfg -requests

I notice there is a SERVICE named CryptSvc preventing my laptop from going to standby. I have looked up on how to disable it using OVERRIDE command to no avail.

If anyone have experience on this, please advise. Thank you very much.

Here is a screenshot of the problem.
