ACPI Lid wakes computer every 3 minutes
My Dell Latitude e6500 has been running great under w7 for several weeks. However, recently, it has been waking up from sleep every time I put it in. Checking the event viewer, I found something disturbing. Under "Power-Troubleshooter," there were many consecutive Event ID 1, stating:
The system has resumed from sleep. Sleep Time: 2009-11-04T18:08:19.824992100Z Wake Time: 2009-11-04T18:09:31.248801300Z Wake Source: Device -ACPI Lid
This occurs is while the lid is securely shut or wide open, sitting on a desk or in its sleeve, plugged and unplugged.
Also, running powercfg from an admin command prompt does not let me disable "ACPI Lid"... it says I do not have permission!
Any ideas on why this is happening?

I have found the culprit... it seems that a registry hack i did "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation\RealTimeIsUniversal" to set the Real Time Clock to UTC ... so Windows and Mac OS X don't screw each other's clocks up (dual-boot with OSx86) had caused this. Disabling that DWORD fixed the sleep problem. I guess I'll just have to deal with changing the clocks manually whenever i use OSX.
