I used to put my computer to sleep every night by putting it on stand by. Now, once I press it nothing happens! Any suggestions?

You could try reinstalling your video driver.

Maybe the Sleep button on the keyboard ceased to work?
Can you verify by connecting the keyboard to another PC?

I have searched everywhere and cannot find an update for my driver. The sites that google brings me to and say they have the update, you have to run one of those bogus driver scans.

My driver is MSI Radeon XPress 200 Series Version 8.231.0.0

I meant something like "Dell Latitude D830".
