Default Laptop won't sleep

The title says it all, when I try to put my laptop to sleep, the screen simply goes off....nothing else. Any ideas?

Check your profile settings I've came across some weird ones from laptops bought from retailers.

I'm unsure if hibernate and sleep are different on laptops, could you not just hibernate it ?
