computer turns itself on when in sleep mode

Hi guys

Like it says on my title. I put my computer into sleep mode when i am stepping away from my computer. It succesfully goes into sleep mode then i come back and it is on wanting a password. So i sit there wondering if i turned it off or not

Well i watched a few days later cause the problem still hasent stoped and i watched it go into sleep mode then a few minutes later turnes back on.

any feedback will be apreciated thanks

Your network connections may be interfering with Sleep Mode - check the settings.

1. Go to Start, type Device Manager and then press Enter
2. Expand Network adapters
3. Right click a network adapter and then click Properties.
4. Click Power Management
5. Make sure the box, Allow this device to wake the computer is NOT TICKED.

Apply this to all network adapters.
