Windows 7: Network card wakes computer from sleep mode.

Network card wakes computer from sleep mode.

My network card wakes my computer from sleep mode. I have disabled all of the wake on lan options for it under device manager -> network card. I also disabled wake timers for sleep mode under advanced power options. Before I did both of those things it would wake immediately after entering sleep mode. Now it wakes after about 30 seconds. Any suggestions?

Hello Rob,

You could use any of the options in the tutorial below to hopefully prevent this device from being able to wake the computer.

Devices - Allow or Prevent to Wake Up Computer

Hope this helps,

Thanks. There was one box that I missed and forgot to check off, but when I unchecked it sleep seemed to work fine.
