Problem - Computer refuses to go into sleep mode. When I force sleep by
clicking the power button on the task bar the computer goes to sleep for
about 5 - 20 seconds and then wakes up and stays awake.

The cause; Installation of a gateway router from AT&T to provide TV and
internet service.

AT&T tech support claims no known issues with this router, yet the
computer slept just fine prior to installation of this router, and if I
power down the router the computer sleeps with no problem. This is not a
solution since the router must remain powered up to provide TV service
to my home.

I have searched the internet for a solution, and have performed all the
steps in the tutorial authored by Brink to no avail.

Looking for ideas., anyone?
