Greetings.
For a few last days my PC (Windows 7 64bit.) failed to go to sleep after long idle, monitor goes turns off but PC still keeps running.
I ran "powercfg requests" command, and came up with "An audio stream is currently in use." result.
If anyone knows how to go around this, please let me know,
Thank you.

Does this problem persist when you restart first? If so, there's actually something in use. It also happens that sometimes Windows is "broken" to where sleep mode doesn't work anymore, which should be fixable too. Try booting your PC up and after it's fully started up, try putting it in sleep mode to see if that works.

Yes, the PC was restarted after the first time this problem accured and it persisted. Also if i put it to sleep my self, it works perfectly fine, but it doesnt go to sleep by it self by the power plan settings.
