    Those open apps may have caused the problem. Has it happened frequently in the past?

    An app was in the process of doing something when you closed it and kept trying. Obviously interrupting sleep.

    From an elevated CMD Prompt type the command:

    powercfg /energy output c:\users\<your user name>\documents\energy.html

    Open the HTML file and see what process, service or app prevented it from sleeping...

    You can get additional info user the same command but substitute the /energy with /sleepstudy or /batteryreport
