I am running Vista 64bit and every time i put my PC on sleep mode, it would turn back on automatically in a matter of seconds. How can I fix this?

Corrupt video drivers can cause this. I would replace the driver

Also check the BIOS to make sure any "Wake-On" options" are disabled

My computer is using a ATi Radeon HD 4650 video card. Where can I find the drivers for it?

Try make your network adapter look like this

Never had that problem but have heard about many times, same with the wake-on as already mentioned.

And may be look at powercfg command http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library...28WS.10%29.aspx - can narrow it down perhaps. powercfg -devicequery wake_armed is a start. Scroll down to "-devicequery query_flags"

Go to control panel, click Device manager icon. Can also type "dev" in startmenu and you should see it. Then find network adapter. Doubleclick and there settings are.
