Anti-Virus Stopping PC From Being Idle
Turns out the reason that my PCs aren't hibernating is because the anti-virus software (Avira) is constantly chattering away in the background so the PC never goes idle, and therefore the sleep/hibernate timers never activate. So, I have two options as I see it: 1) change AV to something which doesn't do this, 2) find an alternative way to hibernate a PC which isn't in use (by a human, that is).
I suspect that the former is easier, assuming such a product even exists, although the latter might be quicker. Thoughts?

If that is why your computers are not sleeping then you need to talk to Avira.
(Avira does not stop ours from sleeping)

That's strange, I wonder what we have running that you don't.
Looking at Task Manager, I have the avgnt.exe process running, and under "Services", AntiVir Security Management Center Agent, AntiVirScheduler Service AntiVirService are all running. How does that compare with your computers?

avgnt.exe avguard.exe avmmailc.exe avshadow.exe avwebgrd.exe
We also have a mix of Version 11 and 2012
How did you work out it was avira causing an issue?

A process of trial and elimination - Avira seems to be the only difference between those PCs which hibernate and those which don't.
