    I just recently built a computer. This is the first time I've done this. It works fine however I can not figure out how to put my system into sleep mode. I go to start/sleep and it does not respond. Is there a setting in the bio I need to configure?

    Does hibernation work?

    Are all your drives installed and certified? Check Device Manager.

    Many BIOS have settings for sleep mode. Usually it is not to turn it on or off, but to choose a sleep type, one usually using less power and resulting in a more complete shutdown (with a longer recovery time) than the other. You could try changing the mode after checking drivers.

    Hibernation, though it takes longer to recover from, is a safer "sleep" mode because it shuts the machine off completely and saves the contents of the memory to the hard drive. No data is lost if there is an interruption of power like it will be if using a sleep or stand-by mode.
