Sensitivity to wake from sleep mode

Last response: in Windows 7

I put my computer to sleep whenever I'm not using it. The problem is that it wakes from sleep mode at random times. I hadn't touched the keyboard or mouse and it starts up. I woke up last night to my computer starting up. I assume that the mouse must sense some sort of small movement. Is there anyway to adjust the sensitivity that it takes to wake my computer from sleep mode?

Control Panel>Power options for any available adjustment to sleep/wake/device adjustment. Also check MB or product online site for BIOS version that may address 'Vista/Win7 'sleep' issues. Or download and install latest BIOS. Check for adjustment related to 'wake' or 'suspend' in system BIOS.

Also, it's possible to have your computer set to 'Wake on Network Activity'.
