Laptop does not sleep when idle

My lenovo 910 yoga laptop does not sleep when idle. I set both screen to turn off and computer to go to sleep after 5 minutes of idle time.
The screen turns off but the laptop does not enter sleep mode.

Looks like this audio stream might be preventing it from going to sleep-
powercfg -requests
[DRIVER] Realtek High Definition Audio(SST) (INTELAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0299&SUBSYS_17AA3801&REV_1000\4&13ab7ca7&0&0001)
An audio stream is currently in use.

I tried powercfg -requestsoverride for this driver using name and id as suggested on the web but that did not help.
I also reset my windows 10. This audio stream is still there on fresh install. I don't have any accessories connected to the laptop.

What else can I check/change to get this working.

The "audio stream" can be a problem with Sleep [and also Hibernate], the computer is still working and can't sleep.
