    I thought i would post this since it took me forever to figure out, and may
    save someone some time.

    Vista 64 would sleep if i hit the sleep key on my keyboard, but would not
    sleep automatically (after the time set).

    Resolution was to re-install the wireless keyboard and mouse with Vista 64
    drivers. As it turned out they were using vista 32 drivers and since they
    worked i did not think they were an issue, but by updating them it fixed the
    sleep issue.

    It couldn't use 32-bit drivers, so the odds are it was using native built-in
    64-bit drivers and the correct or updated drivers fixed your issue. Glad it
    is fixed.
