Brand New System, been using about a week now.
I have Windows 7 Home Ed. Premium 64-Bit OS.
When I click on the Select Arrow on Shut-Off on Start Window, and select "SLEEP", the Computer Shuts off the Monitor, then Starts to Sleep, after about 5 seconds it's back On in Full Mode.
It was working fine until about 2 days ago, Is there a Way to Correct this Behavior, and what would cause it?

I'm not a big fan of sleep mode (or hibernation). Instead, try setting the hd and display to power down after a defined period of inactivity. The result is essentially the same and both you and your system will be happier.

So, could you give me a Walk through on how to do that? I'm sure I could figure out the Display part, the 3-HD's are a different matter.

Control Panel - Power Options - the rest should be easy.
