In my example i selected a mouse:

I've had issues with some devices that cause sleep problems with the wake the computer option enabled, so i turn it off for all devices.
My wake_armed list is blank, no devices.

Does screen saver work for you ?
I'm wondering if something is preventing the PC from entering the idle state.

You could try a clean startup to see if you have something auto running that causes a conflict with auto sleep.
Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

You could also run a System File Check to make sure you don't have any errors.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I'm running out of ideas, other than looking through the sleep mode problems tutorial.

Nothing worked! Still wont sleep! UGH!

I don't think I told you from the start, I am running Win 7 on Bootcamp on a Mac, shouldn't make a difference .. Still running win 7 on its own.. This Cirrius Driver seems to be the main issue and wont go away.. thanks for all your help!

Sorry to hear nothing works for you

For me, i still have the audio request as i showed in post #14.
The request override works, and my pc sleeps, manual or auto, even though i have this request.

I don't have any experience with Mac/Bootcamp.

I don't know if this will help, but if you want you can try it.
Temporarily Disable your audio device(s) that uses the Cirrus driver in Device Manager.
I'm sure you'll temporarily lose sound, and i don't know if that will get rid of the request.

When it boots, it shows a...
