Won't stay asleep

Manually setting the computer to 'Sleep' when I go to bed works, but sometimes only for about 5 - 10 minutes.

I can set the computer to 'Sleep' and in a few seconds after it thinks about it, the monitors go to Sleep and then the computer itself. Once out of every five or six times the computer and monitors will wake up by themselves (which wakes me up if I've already fallen asleep) while I am lying in bed with me and no one else near the computer, mouse, monitors, etc.

Anyone else have this problem?

Thanks

It must have insomnia.

Seriously though it sounds like you have it set to wake on network activity.

Do the following.

1. Type Device manager into search.
2. Click on Network Adapters > right click it > Properties
3. Power Management tab > Uncheck "Allow this device to wake computer"

Then go get some sleep.

Thanks!
