When one of my family members' leaves their facebook "feed" page open in firefox, the computer will not go to sleep, nor hibernate automatically. This effects multiple different computers running Windows 7 and Vista.

I believe it has to do with the update-window scripting, though I do not know why the browser(?) is keeping the computer awake. Peculiar though because watching a movie in the browser allows automatic sleep.. Must just be scripting.

Anyone have this issue or know of a "fix"?
