    What is keeping my Sleep settings from working?


    I have my Power and Sleep settings to turn off the Screen after 10 minutes and put the computer to sleep after 1 hour. I've noticed that the screen stays activated for much more than 10 minutes not sure yet if the computer is failing to sleep after 1 hour. What causes the screen to stay awake? and how can I fix it?

    :)
