Specs: Windows Vista
In power options I can set various times for monitor to sleep and for computer to sleep. Only the monitor obeys (lol). The computer nevers shuts down and goes to sleep.

Do you have other devices, such as your network interface card or mouse, that could be set to "wake up" on use? If your NIC is, it may be a program performing an update or "calling back" to their server with info and therefore preventing your computer to use Sleep Mode.
