When I choose to sleep from the start button, it'll turn turn the monitor off but not my processor, and no matter what I do, I can't get it to turn back on again unless I restart the computer and take out the psu cable for a bit.

What I want to do though, is make the whole computer turn off, processor and monitor, and I think this is called hybrid sleep. My computer automatically goes into this state after 30 minutes of inactivity, and I can press any key for the whole system to turn back on.

How can I make my computer go into this state manually?
I checked microsoft's website, and it says just click sleep, but that turns it into regular sleep mode, not hybrid sleep, and hence doesn't let the monitor turn on until I restart..
