    Computer not entering sleep state.

    As the title says recently my computer is not getting into sleep state although i've set it at 30 minutes.
    Tried a lot of stuff like energy-report from power cfg:

    System Availability Requests:System Required Request
    The device or driver has made a request to prevent the system from automatically entering sleep.
    Driver Name \FileSystem\srvnet

    Though i cannot find which device is causing it.
    Already checked all devices in device manager but didn't find anything related.

    PS:computer is going to sleep if i click it , just refuses to go automatically.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi there. You're not alone with this issue. Many have not been able to figure it out. This is one of the longest, if not the longest thread on this forum. A problem with many variables. You're probably better off reading the last 3 or 4 pages to understand.
