    Sleep mode stopped working in Vista

    Hi, this is another problem after installing the service pack. Now
    the Sleep mode won't work, it just wakes up after a couple minutes,
    same thing when I click the power button in the start menu. I tried
    changing the power management, the mouse settings, and the cfg
    settings with the command prompt and nothing works. I have to
    completely shut it down or else it just wakes up by itself. It worked
    great until I installed the service pack.
    Any ideas?

    Hello Blyss,

    This will show you a few things to check for the problem. I would check to make sure that the "Wake on ...." settings is off for the network device and in BIOS. It is the usual culprit.

    Hope this helps,
