Default Windows 7 goes into sleep immediately

This is a problem which has started to occur on my own system. Typically with my own problems I've not had much time to investigate it.

Whenever I boot W7 it gets almost to showing the desktop but immediately goes into sleep. If I let it go to sleep and press the on button it wakes up to my user's log in screen.

There are no errors shown in the event logs.

You dont see anything in the logs like:

The system is entering sleep.
Sleep Reason: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

what about checking all the normal power setting issues.

Try running a power efficiency report?

powercfg -energy -output %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\report.html

I tracked it down to the event log service. When that was disabled it was fine. I noticed Norton Ghost and Task Scheduler both depend on this service so killed Ghost. I couldn't kill or stop the task scheduling service (not sure if this is normal or not) so went through every scheduled task and checked the ones that were triggered at start up and either killed them or reset them. This solved it.
