Windows 7: Windows won't sleep properly

31 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

Windows 7 Home Premium X64

My W7 home premium machine stopped going into sleep mode after I installed Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2541014)

Before that it was working fine. How can I uninstall this?

Open programs and features and you should see Windows Service Pack 1 update or something and you can remove it from there.
