    Hello everyone

    Everytime I try to put my computer into sleep/hibernate mode it immediately wakes up. I googled it and someone suggested to disable the option to allow the mouse/keyboard to wake computer.
    I did that, as well as disabling Windows update. But I still have the problem.
    Not only that problem though. When the computer sometimes does sleep, it won't wake up. The only way it wakes up is if I turn off the power from the back.
    Then the computer will power on and say "windows resuming"

    Is there anyway to fix this? I've been trying to use the sleep/hibernate function more as of late but it's become rather annoying cause it's not properly working.

    Thanks :)

    And here's my system info:

    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
    Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor, AMD64 Family 16 Model 10 Stepping 0
