No Auto Sleep - Manual Sleep OK

I've fixed the PC so it will Sleep without waking up seconds later (it was
the USB keyboard & mouse waking it). My new problem is that when left alone
it will not sleep, but a manual sleep works. I've checked the Balanced Plan,
it is set to sleep after 30 minutes. What else can I do?

Control Panel>>System and Maintenance>>Power Options>>Change When the
Computer Sleeps (in The left pane). Set up the option of minutes from NEVER.

Drill down into the advanced settings and make sure you set the conditions
you want to cause sleep.

I'm not sure what you mean. Under "Sleep after", I have just time options.
Are you suggesting there are converse rules, such as No intervention: Sleep?

Not sure where you came up with your question, but you should try to set to
1 min. If it won't go to sleep if untouched for a couple of minutes, go
into the other options and see if anything is set that would interfere with
the sleep.

There isn't.

Anyone else got a suggestion?

If you have Microsoft wireless mouse it may NEVER go to sleep. One of my
machines does it. There is a hotfix somewhere at MS websites but I have no
time now to do search--my wife is calling me out for dinner.
