    My PC wont go to sleep, my monitors will turn off but my PC carries on running and making sounds in the background. I've tried what I've found on Google, from changing some registry thing, to turning off the network adapter from being able to wake it and turning on sleep in power options.... still doesn't sleep.

    Anything else I can try?

    Thanx.

    Open an elevated command prompt and enter "powercfg -requests" without the quotes to find out what could be keeping your system from sleeping.
