Clarification Request
Might need a re-write.

Here my laptops resume from hibernation or sleep when I press the power button.

If I were to guess you want a pure sleep but that requires not only all the drivers but that all those support sleep.

I can't guess your Windows 7 install plan. It's much too hard on folk today. I strongly suggest you use the OS the S400 came with.

On pressing keyboard it wakes

On pressing the keyboard, few minutes after i pressed the power button it immediately wakes. it seems only the display was closed.
It seems the power plan i chose doesn't work, or that's how it wakes from sleep? i think waking from sleep requires pressing the power button, right?

I have this old Samsung

It does NOT sleep in the factory condition. Samsung implemented their own sleep that used some flash to hold the hibernation and disabled sleep in the system.

This wasn't explained in the product manual but as a programmer I was able to read more and it dawned on me why they did what they did. So I gave up trying to change it and used it for years without trouble.

Here I think your post needs some rewrite. There may be something specific to the new machine that changed how it worked on the old machine. That is, my Samsung required a tap of the power button to resume from its sleep. My old desktop could be configured to a keyboard tap.

Machines change, procedures change.
