added sleep so that the Win 7 computer can be manually placed into sleep mode. Thing is sometimes when I hit the power button instead of the thing saying resuming windows I get the message that the computer was not shut down correctly and to START windows. Doesn't sleep but seems to "crash". This can happen when I manually do a sleep request from the start menu or when it does its' own after inactivity.

Try creating a new "Sleep" shortcut on your Desktop using the following command:
C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0
When done, simply double-click it and your computer should immediately go to sleep.

To wake it back up, click the mouse, hit any key, or push the On/Off button.
