GL 552VW -dh71 hard drive shuts off but computer won't sleep on battery

Hey guys, I've changed my battery (it stopped working) to a replacement battery from Bravvo. Recently I'm noticing that the laptop doesn't go to sleep after the set time period. The display and everything else turns off, except the power indicator and the power button light. Is it an OS issue ? Battery issue ?
Help. :'(

Hello jtchrome
Is your laptop fan still spinning? Any air coming out of the manifold?
Thank you

Hello Bill, thank you so much for responding. The laptop fan was not spinning and there was no air coming from the manifold. I updated the bios to the 300 version yesterday, and since then, the laptop has been going to sleep normally. After the BIOS update, the laptop speed is significantly slower (it now takes about 5 minutes to startup) and the disk usage stays at 98 -100% for a few minutes after the laptop wakes. Everything else seems fine.
