If Cortana is enabled (Settings->Privacy->Microphone + Voice Activation), PC can't go to sleep state. Filled up microphone sign is all the time showed in notification bar, meaning Cortana has access to microphone continuously preventing PC from going to sleep state. Can't add screenshots as Snip & Sketch app in build 18975 also broken.

Update: restarting PC solved problem with Snip & Sketch
