Why can I not send Windows Vista Home Premium into sleep mode?

What would keep a Windows Vista Home Premium from going to sleep? Even choosing the sleep function from the log off menu. Let me also mention that it doesn’t want to shut down sometimes.

    If you have  media sharing turned on ( for xbox , ps3) Open control panel and goto
    Power Options > change Plan settings > Advanced Power
    +SleepAllow hybrid
    Sleep > disabled Allow wake timers > disable/enable try both settings

    USB selective suspend >
    +When Shareing media 

    Set to allow the computer to sleep
