    Hey Xilnik, I don't know if you're subscribed to this, but thought I'd add my two cents.
    I've encountered this "not going to sleep" issue for years ever since I started using homegroups, and it has definitely been the case with Windows 8 as well. After recent clean reinstall of Windows 10 it came back which caused me to stumble into this thread.
    What fixed the issue for me is something I remember I've done in the past - leaving the homegroup on all connected PC's, and then shutting them down. The end result should be no traces of former homegroup, so it never says "join the homegroup" on every PC but "create homegroup" option should be available. Then, create a new homegroup on the PC you had problems with - while other computers are switched off, and then join each other computers to the new group.
    This has fixed the non-sleeping bug (once again) for me, at least on this main PC ( I haven't fully checked but I'm pretty sure others go to sleep too ).
    The reason this happens ( as I've read somewhere years ago ) is that something becomes wrong with the homegroup i.e. it becomes kinda corrupted and doesn't act correctly across machines.
    Hi, Urik. I appreciate your input. I had actually tried recreating the homegroup several times over the past few years in hopes it would fix the issue. For a long time, I just dealt with my main system always being on and tried not to let it bother me. Financial constraints became a factor recently with electricity bills rising, so I looked into it more. I believe there is something unique about my sleep issues related to a conflict between my printer and the homegroup. I suppose I could contact Canon and see what they recommend in that regard, but connecting my network devices without the homegroup seems to have resolved my issues for the time being.

    I've read your reply, and just to update, my solution didn't stick for me either - shortly after the main PC stopped going to sleep again.
    So I might end up overriding the process or just ignore it.
