Sleep Mode (really?)

Hi everyone,

I've got a little, but annoying problem. Sleep Mode DOES NOT work! I've
tried everything and these are the results:
- Sleep Mode worked only ONCE, at the Logon Screen (or Welcome Screen), when
I was logged off, but I've tried that environment a lot of times, logged off
and logged on, and it DOES NOT work anymore!
- It doesn't work in ANY environment (startup, welcome screen, at desktop,
in other programs)!
- The only reaction I get from the computer in Sleep Mode is turning off the
screen, the computer keeps working.
- I don't have any different configuration from the time it worked (more
difficult, eh?)
My PC is a Sony VAIO VGC-RC210G with:
- Intel Pentium D 930 (2x3.00GHz)
- ATi Radeon X300
- Vista is activated
Any solutions? This annoys me. I can't put this computer, when I sleep, into
Sleep Mode or...

....Hibernation! Vista has a Hibernate function??? "_"

Thanks for any help ^_^

Re: Sleep Mode (really?)

I fought with this problem for a while, read all the newsgroups tried
all sorts of suggestions before finding the answer.

1. Set your BIOS such that the USB devices (such as mouse) cannot wake
the PC
2. Switch from Power mode to either Balanced or Power Saver.

My laptop did not sleep if the Power mode was Performance.

Good luck.
