Can't get to sleep!

  legalrep 10:16 03 Jan 2008

After major problems and having to reinstall my graphic cards (have twin 7800gt Nvidia) everything seem to be back to normal except one really silly thing!

When I press the sleep button on my keyboard the system says its going into sleep mode but shuts down and I have to restart same as when I first switch on!

I have gone to Power option and reset here but does the same thing for some reason my machine seems to have lost the ability to go into sleep mode.

Any ideas any one? Not a major problem but don't understand why all of a sudden this has started to happen.

if use the sleep button in your start menu, does it still shut down, if not, it may be your keyboard.

sorry should have said XP Pro

if it is vista then

go to power options, then click the change power plan on the one you use you use and go to advanced power options.

go to 'power buttons and lid' and go to 'sleep button action' then check they say sleep.
