Computer keeps waking up from Sleep

I have my computer set to sleep after 3 minutes, But I notice it always wakes up on it's own accord. Shortly after going into sleep mode. I have disabled wake timers in advanced power settings, but doesn't stop it.

Oh and the other thing, which might be related. When resuming from sleep, there is a USB Device is Not Recognised message just above the system tray. Could that be causing it. How can I tell what USB Device it is. Mouse and keyboard are working fine and are the only 2 usb devices I have left plugged.

Ok i found out that the usb keyboard and mouse were instantly waking the computer up when going into sleep mode. I don't know why, they weren't doing it on windows xp, now since i'm on windows 7 they are. I have gone into device manager and unticked both the keyboard and mouse options to allow this device to wake up the computer from sleep. And the unknown device is the card reader, so I just unplugged it.

Subby,

Did you have the latest drivers for these devices installed?

I installed PC Stop Driver program, and said all device drivers are upto-date. I also upgrade the bios to the latest version.

You might also check your PC or motherboard and device manufacturer's site for the support -> driver download page to see what they have available as well.

Computer freezes after waking up from sleep.
I'm on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit edition. My computer keeps freezing after waking up from sleep; usually the second or third time I do it before I have to do a shut down. It only started happening this week and I haven't downloaded any new software. I ran various virus scanners and nothing showed up.
