Windows XP machine won't go into sleep mode

by arnstrb / October 16, 2009 11:16 AM PDT

I have a windows XP desktop that will not go into sleep mode.
I have tried many times to make the setting to get it to go into sleep mode after 15 minutes of non-use. The pc never goes into sleep mode.
Please help. Thanks
