Windows 7 wont Sleep

Hi Experts,

I can't get windows 7 to sleep. Ive set Power Saver to turn off display in 1 minute and Put the computer to sleep in two minutes, to test the sleep function but it won't work.

Any thoughts?

Cheers

1) type this into command window and see it you have open connections: powercfg -requests

2) Type this as well: powercfg -energy

Something is keeping your PC awake. It could be an open share something is holding open? It could be various reasons.

If those don't point you in the right direction, might be file corruption so at that point you could try this...

Start - type this in Search Box ->  COMMAND   find at top and RIGHT CLICK  -  
RUN AS ADMIN

Enter this at the prompt - sfc /scannow

Below are the results of the commands you suggested. However, there really isn't any explanation why it won't sleep.
