"I have upgraded my laptop from Windows 8 to 8.1 and the Sleep Mode doesn't work. I click on Sleep in Power options; it goes into sleep for a moment and then goes into a state where only the display is off. I move my mouse or any click on the keyboard, the lock screen immediately shows up. Even closing the lid of the laptop doesn't work. What can I do??"
