Windows 7: Windows 7 power sleep problem

Windows 7 power sleep problem

Build a new HTPC and it's working, yeaah.
Only one problem remaining, it will not go in to power sleep.
However I can force it in to power sleep (in the shut down pull down menu), so it knows how to do it and it stays in power sleep.
But it won't do it by itself.

Been looking around the web and found several topics, also tried different things but the problem remains.

Any ideas on how to properly diagnose/troubleshoot this issue.

Thanks in advance for your support
