Have you tried selecting sleep under the Power Options and then restarting your computer? I sometimes can't switch power profiles without restarting the system. Also, system specs would be good. Sometimes, certain models of computers have an issue.

When I had trouble getting my computer to sleep when I was running Win 10 it was always a problem with the video card driver. Check to see if the card manufacturer has an updated driver or even an older driver that might work.

OK so at least we are not dealing with the complication of S0 Modern standby.

Like Winuser said, the culprit is most likely your video card driver.
I had the exact problem, and solved it by reverting to an older driver.
The latest is not always the greatest.

1. Install an older driver.

2. Open Run (WIN+R) and enter:
C:\Windows\System32\control.exe powercfg.cpl,,3

3. Restore the defaults for the power plan.
4. Restart the computer.

Edit: do not forget the 2 commas between cpl and 3.
