Automatically “Sleep” issue in Windows 8.1

A lot of withsteps users came to me and ask for help having an issue with turning their computers to sleep automatically. Basically, there is a setting in Windows that will set your computer to sleep automatically when you are idle (let’s say for 15 minutes). But it doesn’t work …. any ideas how to fix this?
