Windows 7 64-Bit

Major derp moment

It was utorrent the entire time. I'm so used to leaving it on and seeding that I completely ruled it out.

Sorry for wasting time!

Thanks again for all the help!

Windows 7

All of a sudden, Windows 7 did not go to sleep at my PC.
Had this problem so many times already, so I became an expert in it.

Tried all of this without any result.
- showed the hidden Advanced Power configuration, sleep when sharing media...
- Removed all USB cables, keyboard and mouse from PC.
- Powercfg -energy showed that a USB device was preventing sleep.
- Followed all the possible setting in Advanced Power Settings

Then I did something that worked:
In the Bios, I disabled all the on board devices....
Then sleep worked again.
I tried to find out which device was the culprit, but sleep just kept on working correctly after all devices were enabled again.

Pffffff. Windows7 sleep must be 1 of the most persistent problems around.
Well, for now it's solved again, but for how long???
