I am having a problem with trying to get my computer to sleep, it will go to sleep then instantly wake from sleep. My first step was to disable all wake timers, wake from LAN, turned off wake from usb (in windows) and everything else that is possible from my scouring the net. powercfg finds no devices or software from preventing my computer from going to sleep.
I have a silverstone FP59 bay device, when it was waking from sleep I noticed that this device would turn off (lights and screen went off) then instantly came back on. I figured that I should check to see if this was the problem so removed the cable connecting it to the usb3 header on the motherboard. When I tried to sleep with it disconnected, sleep worked, Yay!
So, what I'm wondering is why does this device wake my computer when it goes to sleep? I have a GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 gigabyte motherboard, I have tried different bios versions to no success. I have disabled the bay device's drivers in device manager and that didn't work. If anyone knows how to fix this that would be awesome, it's really frustrating. Also, while the computer won't sleep it will hibernate. I don't like hibernating though because I hear it is not good when using an SSD drive.
