Windows 7: laptop won't sleep when I close the lid.

laptop won't sleep when I close the lid.

Hey all. Running Win7 via Bootcamp on a Macbook Pro 2009. For the last few days, when I close the lid the computer just continues running and cooks because I'm not aware it's not asleep. Power Options page set to 'sleep when I close lid' and all that. Makes no difference. Any thoughts?

Thanks for any suggestions.
