Windows 7: Hibernate not working

Hibernate not working

When I hibernate my computer it shuts down ok but then a minute or so later it will boot back up.
It completely powers down and I can even unplug it from the mains and plug it back in. Usually a it turns itself back on after a couple of mins, but sometimes it takes a while longer.
If I hibernate the computer and turn the mains off for say 5 mins then turn it back on, it does not restart itself.
I used to have this problem when I first installed the beta but it slowly went away.
It's a bit annoying that it's resurfaced.
As far as I can tell all drivers are up to date.

Hello Mik, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might check through the items in the tutorial below to see if it can help you find out what is waking up your computer. A usual cause is the "Allow to Wake" option checked in the network adapters Power Management Properties in Device Manager.
