Power Management/Power Options in Vista

System: 3.4 GHZ Pentium Desktop
Motherboard: DFI Lanparty 875P-T
BIOS: Award v6.00PG (3/25/05)
Display Adapter: NVidia GeForce 7600 GS
Monitor: Dell 2407 WFP-HC
Router: Linksys BEFW11S4 v4
OS: Windows Vista Premium SP1
wireless mouse, wired usb keyboard

I can set the Advanced Power Options so that the ON/OFF button or selection
of "hibernate" in the start menu will put the computer into hibernation and
it works OK. When I configure the advanced settings to make the computer go
into either the hibernate, hybrid sleep or sleep mode automatically after the
number of minutes designated in the "settings", the computer remains in the
full powered up mode after the number of minutes designated.

My BIOS allows for two ACPI global states: S1 or S3. I have tried both
settings and neither seems to correct the problem.

Any suggestions on how I can get my computer to go into a reduced power
state automatically after a designated number of minutes?

Thank you

Further to my previous post, I did not have this problem prior to upgrading
from Windows XP Professional to Windows Vista Premium.

If the computer is actively sharing files or media then it will not go to
sleep (the sharing would be interrupted if it did).
Check your multimedia settings in advanced settings.
Also in network and sharing: towards bottom see media sharing.
