Specs: Windows 7
When I put my pc in sleep mode the monitor goes off normally but CPU kept running i mean the fan is running. If I want to wake it, it is normal as usual. It is not like that before. It was happening after I did something that is in Windows task manager--processes-- I clicked the option of End process of some svchost.exe processes. What I have to do to put my CPU in sleep mode.

Shutdown & restart your PC, that will restore any required processes that you stopped.

In future, don't end any processes when you don't understand what they are for!

Power it off again and afterwards remove the power cord (and main battery too if it is a laptop). Before restoring things to normal hold the Power Off/On button down for at least 20 seconds, which discharges the motherboard components. See if that gets you out of trouble.

If that doesn't help and you can still get to Windows then run System Restore to a date and time just before you ended that task.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Go to Windows Control Panel> Power options> Create plan. Then set options as you wish. I recommend you set Hard Drive and USB settings to never sleep.
