Sleep mode - Computer does not got to sleep
My system is a Dell Dimension 9200 running Vista Ultimate.
For an unknown reason my desktop computer does not go to the sleep mode. I
did set the power options settings for the computer to go to sleep after 30
One odd thing is that the display does not turn off either. I set the screen
saver to turn on after 15 minutes - which it does. I also set the display to
turn off after 20 minutes - but it never turns itself off.
Any idea what could be wrong?

Go to Advance Power Settings.
Set hard drive to turn off a minute or 2 before sleep.
Set Hybrid and Hibernate modes to "Off"
Under USB settings select "Disable"
Under Multimedia select "Allow ....."
Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately it did not solve the problem. I also
checked Bob's suggestion with no success. A note - I suspect it may have
something to do with the monitor because it does not turn off. I set the
screensaver to start after 10 minutes and to shut down after 15 minutes. The
screensaver starts as set but the monitor never turns off.
Am using ultimate also,
