    As MasterChief mentioned earlier about the graphics card, could you check you are on the latest revision of the drivers for your graphics card.

    Also does you motherboard have an internal GPU? if so it has been noticed that sleep does not work when the internal gpu is disabled in conjunction with an external graphics cad. Try enabling the internal gpu, configure not to be used by any of your monitors.

    Your only hope is updating the bios to newest (and checking settings there) and making sure you have the latest video driver installed.

    If those things don't work out, use hibernate.
    No, I have Installed it manually. My laptop comes with 7.
    But about 6 months ago I installed windows 8 and it was working without problem. But this time sleep problem occurs.

    I will check video driver and post the result here

    In Power Options, expand the 'Power buttons and lid' entry. It may only sleep on lid closure.
