Windows 7: Computer won't return back to sleep after waking for recording

Computer won't return back to sleep after waking for recording

I am running Windows 7 Pro 64bit and am having an issue with the computer returning back to sleep. At the moment, I have hybrid-sleep enabled, and if I schedule a recording while the computer is powered down in the hybrid-sleep mode, it will wake itself to record the program. However, I'd like the computer to place itself back into its previous state after the recording is complete. So far, I haven't been able to figure out how to do this. The computer wakes just fine but will not return back to sleep. I'll add that during the waking/recording process, the computer has not been touched to "wake" it up, if you will.

Is there a setting in the power options that I need to check that I haven't seen?

Consider trying simple sleep mode and/or hibernate to test if your computer responds the same way (doesn't go into a power saving mode).
