Hmm it could be malware or a virus but normally those would attack your shutdown button command so that you can't turn the computer off. You can go into the registry and see if someone tweaked your sleep settings.

Also check your control panel > hardware and sound > Power Options > Choose when to turn off the display (left side) and see if "Put the Computer to sleep" option is at "Never"

yeah i did this besides the registry thing... I do have Iolo system mechanics so maybe that messed my registry though i'm not sure... im running like 3 things checking for malware, viruses, and spyware... I will try just pulling the power of my system and just letting it sit for a while maybe that will fix the problem
