I have recently built my computer. This is the first time for me. It is up and running just fine however one feature I like to have is the ability to put my system to sleep. How do I make this happen. My keyboard has the sleep button and of course I should be able to access that option through the start button but it does not work. I have looked through all options in the bios and see nothing that pertains to this. Am I overlooking something in bios or do I do this some other way? Please help.

Yes I do have that option however when I choose it my monitor goes to sleep but my computer does not.

The fans are still running at full blast. Seems like it isn't going to sleep anyway. My other computer basically shut down when put into sleep mode. I could then wake it up by moving the mouse.

Make sure you have the latest Windows 7 compatible drivers installed for all the hardware.

Also it would be handy to list all the hardware in the PC as well as if its a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows 7.
