Windows 7: Goes into Sleep for 45 seconds then wakes up...

Goes into Sleep for 45 seconds then wakes up...

All by itself,... It is the most bizarre thing. Either it goes to sleep by the timer setting or I can use the "Start button" then select sleep. It closes up properly and looks all hunky-dori. Then between 30 and 45 seconds later, it wakes up again.

I heard it happening enough last night that I had to turn the computer off. I joke that it only needs 45 seconds of sleep and is ready for work again... Does anyone know of an explanation or fix for this?

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

I think that this tutorial will help. Based upon experience, its probably NIC that is the problem (wakes due to internet). This will all be explained in this tutorial.
