    My system is a Dell Dimension 9200 running Vista Ultimate.

    For an unknown reason my desktop computer does not go to the sleep mode. I
    did set the power options settings for the computer to go to sleep after 30

    One odd thing is that the display does not turn off either. I set the screen
    saver to turn on after 15 minutes - which it does. I also set the display to
    turn off after 20 minutes - but it never turns itself off.

    Any idea what could be wrong?

    Go to Advance Power Settings.
    Set hard drive to turn off a minute or 2 before sleep.
    Set Hybrid and Hibernate modes to "Off"
    Under USB settings select "Disable"
    Under Multimedia select "Allow ....."

    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately it did not solve the problem. I also
    checked Bob's suggestion with no success. A note - I suspect it may have
    something to do with the monitor because it does not turn off. I set the
    screensaver to start after 10 minutes and to shut down after 15 minutes. The
    screensaver starts as set but the monitor never turns off.
