Why can't I get my computer to sleep?

When I try to put my computer to sleep, the monitor goes off, but the system itself still sounds like it's running, not powering down. I saw a post about Windows 10 same type of issue, but I'm on Windows 7 and it doesn't seem like that post applies.. Any ideas to fix this? I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
 


Yeah, switch it over to balanced and your computer will have an easier time sleeping at night.

I changed it to balanced, and changed the default settings back on that plan. It does the same thing. I forgot to mention, on now this plan, and the other plan. The monitors go off, and the power light on the computer starts flashing like it would if it were asleep, but the power supply fan and other fans are still running. So maybe it's like half sleeping or something. Can't figure it out

Yeah there is some overclocking. I didn't think to check anything in the BIOS. What should I be looking for in there to fix the power states issue?
