    It appears as you have not adjusted the setting properly so i would recommend you to adjust the power options again. Also try to ,make sure that you have disabled all the devices that may wake up your computer from the sleep mode if possible try to adjust these settings with the help of the help menu or press the F1 key from the keyboard.

    It would have been better if you have downloaded the windows 7 upgrade advisor from the official microsoft website. So i would suggest you to download it now and check for all the suggestions given by this software since it will recommend you about the software as well as the hardware needs of the system and try to upgrade your system.

    Most probably it might be due to a driver issue so i would request you to check all your drivers. Whether they are up to date or not. If not then try to install the drivers properly. The best match for any hardware are the windows driver but you can still achieve somewhat more better drivers from the manufacturer's website.

    Well if nothing has worked yet then try the steps which i have mentioned below Since these steps solved my sleep problems:

    * On the start menu select the search box and type "powercfg.cpl" and press Enter.
    * Click "change plan settings", After that click "change advanced power settings".
    * Browser down and under "Multimedia Settings > When Sharing Media", Now choose "Allow the computer to sleep".
    * Press the OK button.
