My System Won't Stay Asleep

I'm at a loss here. My system never fails to wake on it's own after about 25 minutes. I made sure my wireless usb card was not allowed to wake the system; I even unplugged it to be certain. I tinkered with the ACPI settings in the UEFI Bios, still nothing. "Allow wake timers" is disabled in the Windows Power Options.

The only time it stayed under was when I changed the deep sleep setting to "S4 and S5" in the bios. It continued to wake after this setting was changed back to the default "S5."

This morning, i installed every windows system update that was available; I think there were 43 in total. Still no luck. Both, sleep and hibernate produce the same result. Could my UPS be at fault here? Any and all ideas are welcome.

I scanned with MalwareBytes in safe mode just to make sure there wasn't any malicious software at play. Also, there are no debug signals on the mobo. Everything seems perfect besides this nagging issue. I downloaded the newest drivers for my motherboard from ASRock's website. Although I'm not quite sure how to install them. Could a bios flash solve this or am I just missing a simpler solution here? This is my first build, by the way.

Here are relevent specs:

[OS] Windows 7 64-bit
[Motherboard] ASRock Z77 Extreme4
[SSD] Samsung 830 (128gb)
[PSU] Corsair HX750
[DDR3] Corsair Vengeance (16gb)
[CPU] Sandy Bridge i5 2500k (stock settings)
[GPU] pending
[UPS] CyberPower 1350VA

  1. Go into your network connections and see if in the properties you have anything pertaining to "magic packets." If so, disable the setting.
  2. run the samsung software for the SSD and disable the hibernate option

    but assuming you have no wired connection to a network , that is waking the PC
    then I think you should try unplugging you mouse and keyboard [ one at a time ] to see if either is at fault

    If that doesnt work then try removing the UPS from the system .

    I didn't see anything like that. I'll list all the properties, just to be thorough.

    I need to connect a new sata cable to my optical drive before trying option one. Would disabling the hibernate option solve the problem for standard sleep mode as well? If it turns out to be the mouse & keyboard or UPS, what would you suggest I do? Am I just *** out of luck?

    Hmm, all right. In that case you may want to glance over the Microsoft Support Page and see if there's anything in there you haven't tried already.

    Best of luck.
  6. When I go into Device Manager, this is the driver info for my SSD...

    Driver Provider: Microsoft
    Driver Date: 6/21/2006
    Driver Version: 6.1.7600.16385
    Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows

    When I click on Update Driver, Windows says it's up to date. I'm assuming I have to install the official Samsung drivers manually. Should I delete this Microsoft driver and install the latest Samsung driver?
