How to Fix Sleep Mode Problem in Windows 7

Windows 7 is faster, has great graphics, has a sweet user interface, and has better features. We all like it -- at least most of us do. There are some things we wish donít happen with Windows 7. Yes, you can begin to list them. One of them is the sleep mode problem. As you know, sleep mode comes in handy whenever we make a dash for coffee. It saves time and money.

When your computer running on Windows 7 refuses to go to sleep, there is a problem. It is very inconvenient when this happens. Some newly installed software program could be the culprit. Try the tips below to try to fix the Windows 7 Sleep Problem.

Are your drivers up-to-date? Check your BIOS, motherboard, and graphics drivers and get them updated if they are not already.

If all is well, you need to run an energy report. Open a CMD window and input powercfg-energy. From the energy report, which is an HTML report anyway, you will be able to see the power capabilities of your computer. You may see why your computer is not going to sleep mode from this report.

Although rare, especially if you've never tampered with your computer RAM before, overclocked RAM could also prevent the computer from going into sleep mode. The Sleep mode problem is also common among computers that are low on memory. Check to see that you have enough memory.

In addition, you need to check your power plan to see if sleep mode is selected. (Control panel-> System-> Power Options-> Change Power Settings.)

If none of these resolves the issue, try to remove peripheral hardware such as the external keyboard, speakers, and so on. Do this one at a time to see if one of them is causing the problem. The last resort would be to install a fresh copy of Windows or to revert to an older version using system restore.
