How to put my laptop to sleep


Hello Everyone.
When I press the sleep button my laptop (aspire 7736Z), my laptop doesnot sleep but it only is getting locked.

I am searching for a bash command to be able to see why my laptop is not sleeping but I didnt found anything appropriate.

Could you please help me?

Best Regards
Alex.

Best Regards!
