Why does my Desktop come out of sleep mode when I bring my laptop out of sleep?

Heyo,

 

Whenever I bring my Laptop out of sleep mode, my Desktop PC is brought out of sleep mode as well. Does anyone know why or how this kind of thing can happen? I'm posting this in the hardware section because I'm assuming it's due to something electrical (well, duh if I think about it). The two are never plugged into the same outlet and I've only observed this happening when they are in the same room (but I have yet to test). Both outlets used by the laptop and PC have power strips with many things plugged in, but only 2-3 devices typically run at a time. I haven't tried this when the two are in different rooms; DELL laptops would never use some sort of over-the-air signal to bring itself out of sleep, would they? That would be bizarre, right?

 

Anyway, has anyone ever heard of something like this happening?

Do you have them networked?

If so, then some sort of Wake-on-LAN must be set up, that's my guess.

I've disabled Wake-on-LAN using the link you provided (it was on), but it's still happening.

Some BIOSs also have a Wake-on-Lan function. Check the BIOS and disable it there too.
