Everytime i hit sleep, about 99% of the time it just restarts my computer. i've ran malware byte's and removed everything from there. i did a virus scan with symantec antivirus and cleaned everything up from there as well. What are all the remaining steps i need to check to fix this? this never used to happen until recently.

i checked my sleep settings already. those are fine. i also set devices under BIOS not to awaken computer from USB ports. as well as LAN to keep it from waking up computer either. now the computer will even restart from hitting the shutdown button as well.

the reason i changed my BIOS to do that was in attempt to keep it from starting the computer back up. it was doing this under normal settings to begin with. if i set it back to on, it can add to re awakening the computer...

Make sure the different "Wake-On" settings are disabled in the BIOS
