    Laptop won't fall asleep


    I have finally found how to keep my computer from spontaneously waking up, and am trying now to get it to fall asleep at the appointed time. Have done all the power option settings, including allowing the computer to sleep under multimedia settings/when sharing media. When entering powercfg –requests I initially found that my audio driver was allowing an audio stream to keep the computer awake. So I entered:
    powercfg -requestsoverride DRIVER "Realtek High Definition Audio" System
    and that seemed to do the trick. For a day. Now it still won’t sleep, and when I enter powercfg –requests I get the following response:

    [DRIVER] USB Audio Device (USB\VID_074D&PID_3554&MI_00\7&1635a614&0&0000)
    An audio stream is currently in use
    [DRIVER] Legacy Kernel Caller

    Any ideas? Thanks so much for your help.

    Try doing a system restore to a previous good working state.
