How can I prevent my computer from waking in sleep mod automatically?

When I log off and the computer goes to sleep it starts up seemingly for no reason at all, automatically, by itself. I have it set to sleep in 10 minutes if undisturbed so it goes back to sleep but it will restart by its self again.

At first i thought it was receiving updates but it’s not receiving anything . I think something online is waking it up. How can this be fixed?

    Well I hesitate to say the problem is resolved! Because I know what the problem is but I have no solution for it yet.It is the router and belkin is trying to say there is nothing wrong with it .Just as long as it connects to the internet its good to go as far as they're concerned . So I'm open for suggestions .I'm getting on the phone and see whose feathers I can ruffel . TIM...

    Check here to see if any programs are schedule to perform task which require your PC to be woken.
    Start > All Programs > Accessories > Systems Tools > Task Scheduler > expand Task Scheduler Library.

    try this Microsoft Fix It 50448 solution.

    Hi Tim,

    Do you happen to have a mouse or other peripheral connected? Is the mouse an old ball mouse, optical or laser? I say this because I have an old Intellimouse Optical which randomly lights up and detects movement despite being completely stationary on my desk. I used to experience the same problem - my PC would suddenly wake up out of sleep mode due to detecting mouse movement.

    Other peripherals may also cause the problem, you could try removing any connected peripherals and seeing if the problem goes away. Let us know, and good luck.
