Look at the NIC properties in Device Manager under Network Controllers. I've found with Vista systems that you have to allow the system to shutdown the NIC to save power to get sleep working properly.

Open up the advanced power settings (change plan settings, then there is a link near the bottom of the next page) and see if what you are looking for is in there.
