Well the sleep mode in Windows Vista worked perfectly until I installed the Nvidia drivers for my Video Card. What could of caused my sleepy mode to stop working? Whenever I tell it to sleep it will start turning itself off, monitor goes black, then computer just falls asleep and then comes right back on within milliseconds.

video Card -- XFX GeForce 6800 GT

Kind of makes me mad because with Windows XP Pro SP2 whenever I put my computer into standby and then resume it later on none of the graphics work right because nwiz.exe didn't reinitiialize itself.

Any info towards this situation would be awesome.

Well I haven't resolved this yet, but I have 97.46 driver, didn't see any newer than that. I'm not sure why my video card does it. Not a big problem tho, I just won't put it into sleep mode I guess.
