Weird sleep problem!!!!



Ok, for the longest time I wasn't able to get any of my computers to go into
sleep mode. Now that I've found the answer sifting through these
forums/posts and it is functioning now, I've developed another problem that I
cannot see anywhere in the forums. Although the computers will sleep now, I
HAVE to set "Automatic" sleep mode for around 5 mins, otherwise it WILL NOT
WORK. I cannot get them to sleep using the sleep buttons or any other way
that the system has been set up for sleep. Only the "Automatic" timing way,
and it has to be set for 5 mins or less. Can someone explain to me what may
be happening here? Thanks.
