Sleep issue : need to do the process 2 times to get it working

Hello, when i try to put my w7 to sleep, it only shuts off the screen, pressing a key it turns on again. Then i put it to sleep again and only that second time it works. I intalled all the updates avalaible.

Look for items "Device not Entering Suspend"

Note: You might need to move the report from C:\Windows\system32\energy-report.html to be able to read it using your browser.
