Computer wont sleep..

It will go into sleep mode and wake up on its own 2 minutes later.

Sometimes it will stay sleeping for a couple of hours and wake itself up.

I thought maybe the mouse was doing it so I turned off the mouse wake.


What do?

    yea boot into the bios and there is an option for something like "power on self/wake lan" or something like that. Make sure it's not checked and be sure to save settings. Tapping f4/f8 at boot should get you there in case you weren't sure..
  10. Nothing in the BIOS about it.
  11. did you put on the auto update check the hour it start and the one you set for auto update for the os or another software
  12. The computer literally will turn back on 30 seconds after going to sleep.

    Sometimes it will make it an hour. Sometimes 10 seconds.

    I can't figure this out.
  13. give the name and model of your motherboard
