    This kind of issue persists due to a particular device. To fix this issue,first of all you need to find the culprit. You can do this easily through command prompt.First of all press "Windows key+R",type "cmd" and hit the enter button. It will open the command prompt window. Now you need to type "powercfg –devicequery wake_armed" command without any quote and hit the enter button. It will find the culprit device. Once found,close it and open the run command(Windows key+R) again.This time,type"devmgmt.msc" in the text box and press the enter button. It will open the device manager window.Try to find the faulty device there and double click on it.Now go to advanced or Power Management tab. Check whether the device is allowed to bring the PC out of standby or not.If it is then uncheck the boxes that wake it.Once done,close the device manager and restart your computer.It will fix your issue.

    Hello Rima !!!

    don't worry, we the EALP members are always here to sort out the guest issue anytime anywhere.
    so, coming to the issue.
    since you r sleep mode is not working because it has been disabled by your brother.
    since the button which is is used to activate the sleep mode has been changed.
    so what you need to do is to activated it.
    and for this do follow the steps given below :-

    1. go to control panel.
    2. go to power option.
    3. go to advance power option.
    4. select the button and the function associated with it.
    5. so select sleep option with the desired button that you want to associate it with.

    then click ok >> apply.
    here you are done.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.
