For the last week I've been scouring the net trying to find a solution. My laptop would enter sleep mode via closing the lid or manually choosing "sleep". It would keep running with the lid closed & immediately come out of sleep mode when I chose it manually. I tried every suggestion, power settings etc. After everything else didn't work, I disconnected the power cord & voila, it went to sleep. Turns out the issue was the computer's power jack & the power cord not connecting properly. I'm posting for others who might see this thread & try this option.
