Solved: Sleep Mode problem
I had no trouble putting the computer to sleep until yesterday.
Now it goes to sleep, but 30 seconds later would wake on its own ( mouse turned off)
I did a rollback to 2 days ago when the problem did not exist - same problem.
I checked all my settings as well as Device Mgr - Network adapter box to check "allow to turn off" is greyed out.
Box is also greyed out in Mouse properties.

I also tried to set Power button to put computer to sleep.
No difference.

I have no idea what has caused this unusual behavior

Any advice appreciated.
Thanks,
Paul

Check the keyboard and Wake-On-LAN settings in BIOS, too. If you have changed any drivers, that could be a problem.

Sleep Mode
After going through solutions. and failing, I was ready to do a restore from a previous Acronis backup.

By accident, I left the mouse untouched for 2 minutes ( I have set power option to sleep at that setting) and the monitor went dark AND the computer went to sleep and stayed there.

The mouse won't wake it, but pushing the power button immediately brings it out of Sleep.
I don't know why I can't set the box in Power Mgmt to turn off since it is grayed out, but at least this irritating problem is solved.

I am now able to put the comp to sleep ( had to also uncheck the keyboard "wake" setting.

I ran a Power Efficiency Report.
Could you take a look at it?
I would like to find out what caused my problem.

Thanks,
Paul

I'll take a look. But if things seem OK, don't look for problems. You can almost always find something that can easily be ignored. Pay attention to the problems that are really problems.
