I recently bought a Samsung Series 5 Laptop with Windows 8 (specs below) and at first it worked fine, but now it won't sleep when it's idle. I've explored the power plan options and I'm using the default balanced power plan which is set to sleep when idle for 25 minutes (plugged in). However, it doesn't sleep. I come back to my laptop hours later and find that only the screen has been turned off.

Oddly enough, when I set the power plan to shut off after 1 minute, it works. It also works when closing the lid or pushing the power button.

Yet it repeatedly fails to sleep after 25 minutes.

Is something keeping it from sleeping, or what? Is there some way to find out? I would appreciate any suggestions.
