I set it so that my laptop is supposed to go to sleep after 45 minutes while in battery mode, and it has been 6 hours, and the laptop didn't sleep.  Good thing I woke up before my laptop completely drained my battery.

 

Here is what the energy-report.html has to say.

Just restarted my laptop, and now sleep works.  Now a new problem.  Why does it take a few minutes for the laptop to go to sleep?  I did a test.  Display turns off after 1 minute.  Laptop sleeps after 1 minute.  Display turns off minutes before laptop goes to sleep.

Tried to automatically sleep again by setting display to turn off after 1 minute and sleep to happen after 1 minute.  Display turns off after 1 minute, sleep doesn't happen.
