First, is your computer really going to sleep or in "prevent idling to sleep mode" or "away mode"?
If your system is really asleep the power button will flash on/off. Otherwise, the screen just shuts off, and enters away mode.
This is common in networked computers that are set to "share media". I had the sleep issue happen on all networked computers; desktop; and (2) notebooks. "allow the computer to sleep" setting must be enabled under the power plan(s).

Put your system to sleep and check the power button. If its not blinking its not in sleep mode, and you will have to adjust the settings under advanced power options for it to enter sleep mode.

If the power buton does blink, then check for devices that are allowed to "wake"
