Why does Windows 7 refuse to enter Sleep Mode? How can you fix this issue?
Windows 7 has got more features to improve overall performance of the system. It offers an improved taskbar, full screen previews and better device management.

A re-designed taskbar will easily allow you to work better and get more things done in a short period of time. The Operating System has been designed to work better with hardware and makes use of resources in a much better and optimized manner. The system usually goes into Sleep Mode to save resources when not in use.
Different reasons for Windows 7 not entering Sleep Mode and ways to fix this issue are discussed below:
- Check the scheduled tasks
- Check start up programs
Check scheduled tasks
One of the major reasons for the system not going to sleep mode can be due to any scheduled task on the system. You may have scheduled a scan for your antivirus which will usually take time to complete. So unless that process is completed or terminated the system will not go into Sleep Mode.
Check start up programs
Another reason for a system failing to go into Sleep Mode may be because the there are lot of start up programs on the system. There are some programs that may not terminate when the system needs to go into Sleep Mode. In such a case you will need to remove that program from the start up list or terminate the program manually every time you put the system in Sleep Mode.
A virus in the system can also create problem while you try to put the system in Sleep Mode. So you need to make sure that there is a dependable antivirus on the system. An antivirus on the system can get the system scanned and remove the virus from the system. You need to make sure the antivirus is updated regularly so that the virus definitions are new so the program is capable of protecting the system from the latest viruses when you go online.
