Hey guys!

I'm having a problem with my laptop. For some reason it always seems to want to wake itself up while plugged into AC power in sleep mode.

I think I've read that this is usually caused by the Lan waking it up. I've disabled the "Allow this device to wake the computer up" option in device manager, and have even unplugged the internet cable from my laptop, but it is still waking up.

I don't believe I have any scheduled virus scans or anything, and there are no scheduled tasks in the task scheduler.

Any help appreciated to fix this, thanks!

Hello,

I've looked through the settings but can't find anything that jumps out at me in particular.
Oh, I should probably also mention that I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium x64

Thanks.
