Windows 7: Laptop won't go into sleep mode

Laptop won't go into sleep mode

I have a Sony Vaio VPCEB32FM Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
I thought all of my problems were gone, but whenever I try put the computer into sleep mode with any button (the power button or from the start circle), it just turns black and won't go into sleep mode. The power button stays green instead of turning orange (sleep mode).
Any help? Could it be a driver problem?
Please don't suggest going into the Vaio Control Center, because that program doesn't work and always crashes.

I'm currently having the same issue with my 42FM Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit machine. I also cannot get the Vaio Control Center / Vaio Care to work either. Have you ever found a solution to this?

I think I actually may have found a fix! I uninstalled the Vaio Control center and all associated products along with the driver for the mouse (ALPS Pointing Device) and rebooted the computer. When it rebooted it reinstalled the driver for the mouse and I've not had the issue since!

Laptop locks up in mid-sleep mode
About a few hours ago, I folded my laptop shut to put it into sleep mode. I left the room for a bit, and came back to notice that I could still hear the fans running. The power light wasn't pulsing to indicate the computer was asleep, either. When I opened the computer, the screen wouldn't turn on,...

Laptop goes into Sleep mode, not Hibernate
I had a problem with my laptop trying to recover from hibernate mode ("Your computer can't come out of hibernation. Status 0xc000009a") and on researching the issue I decided the hiberfil.sys file was probably corrupted. So I used command prompt and typed "powercfg -h off" then did a disk...
