Type in "powercfg –lastwake" (without quotes) into Command Prompt and see what's the last device that woke the computer up.

I used to have the same problem and it ended up being my wireless mouse.

Also, you can type in "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" and see what devices are allowed to wake up the computer.

thanks for the answer, it looks like my mouse is waking the computer, so i disabled "allow device to wake computer " from the device manager and it works
