    I am running windows 7 x64
    I have Comodo Internet security (antivirus and firewall)
    Radeon 4850x2
    And it recently started doing this.
    I have the PC networked to a home server running windows server 2003, and recently changed my login on this pc to match the user I created on the windows 2003 server with which it logs in as. (This negated me having to log in twice- once into this PC and the second to a network share on the server.) I'm not sure if this is significant, but it seems like a networked pc would be less likely to sleep.
    Things I've tried
    - I set both display to turn off and pc to sleep after one minute then:
    Unplugged all USB devices
    Turned of all System Tray Apps
    Turned off all Network adapters
    Picked up a book

    One minute later the PC's display shut off, but still no sleep. Whats the deal?

    In power options > multimedia settings > "when sharing media", do you have it set to "allow to enter away mode" preventing it from sleeping?
