Sauron had bound a lot of his own spirit in the Ring. When "slain" by Isildur, it was only the power of the Ring, anchoring his spirit to Middle Earth that enabled him to return. With its destruction, Sauron's anchor to life was gone. Whether he died utterly, or whether his spirit lived on to take form in a later age I am not certain, but what I am sure about is that he would never again be as powerful.Then Sauron failed, and he was utterly vanquished and passed away like a shadow of malice; and the towers of Barad-dur crumbled into ruin, and at the rumour of their fall many lands trembled.
