I have had this problem for a while and it really annoys me. what happens is when i put my computer to sleep it will wake up a few seconds later because of my network adapter which has a tick box that says allow this device to wake up the computer, now this isn't my problem because all i have to do is uncheck the box and it will sleep fine. My problem is every time i restart my PC the network adapter decides to revert the settings back forcing me to go and uncheck the power management box. most of the time i forget to do this after a restart or shutdown and i will end up putting the PC to sleep just as i go out or get into bed and it turns back on. All i want to know is if there is a permanent fix for this?
not much of a major but i'm a bit ocd with my PC and little things annoy me.
any help would be appreciated

Hi, In BIOS, Power Management, try disabling Power On by Ring and PME Event Wake Up.
