Usually, to check in the BIOS, you'll have to press "Del" as the system boots (although other keys are used). Read the BIOS screen as the system boots to see what you need to press to enter "Setup".
Once in, cruise around and find any entries that have "Wake" in them. Don't change anything yet - and don't save the changes when exiting. This will ensure that your system still boots. Let us know what the entries are and we'll help you to ensure that they're the right one's.
Within Windows it's a bit more complicated. You'll have to check many different settings and devices. First, check your Power settings in Control Panel to see if Standby/Hibernate/Sleep options are enabled. Disable them for now (you can always re-enable them if needed). Then start going through all the devices and their properties to check and see if there's any boxes for "sleep", "wake", or "resume". Ensure that you check all devices that can communicate with the outside world - this includes the modem, network card and connection, keyboard, mouse, and maybe even the USB settings.
