    Windows 10 doesn't go to sleep

    My computer does not go to sleep mode for some reason. I can get it to sleep mode manually but it doesn't do it automatically like it shows in the power option that I had set to 5 minutes. The display does turn off on its own. its just the that the PC wont go to sleep mode on its own.
    These are my specs:
    Mobo - ASUS Sabertooth Z170 Mark 1
    CPU - Intel i7-6700K
    RAM - Kingston HyperX FURY Black 32GB
    Storage - Intel 705 series SSD
    GPU - EVGA GTX 980

    Any info or help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
