New culprit with Vista and sleep

Having, once again, run into issues with sleep working I found a new culprit.  After updating my nVidia drivers to the all new WHQL releases from them, I found I had still lost the ability to sleep, but hibernate was unaffected. 

After some additional troubleshooting, I found that the Windows Media Center Extender service was the offender.  I just recently got an XBOX 360 Elite ( with Guitar Hero II ) and was messing around with the Extenders.  Manually stopping the WMCE service allowed me to sleep again.
