Screen keeps turning on/waking up by itself (Win7)
Win7 laptop set to turn off screen after a few minutes of inactivity using win7 power options. Sometimes the screen turns on/wakes up while in this state seemingly randomly for no reason.
It's running an Opera session, gadgets for weather, CPU monitor, and calendar. Sometimes runs other apps but that doesn't seem to affect this behavior at all.
No notifications pop up when this happens, no errors. No viruses, CPU usage is very low (single digits). No new applications installed, nothing really installed besides windows updates and Opera update (this didn't change anything). Nothing obvious changed since before this started happening besides these updates. No graphics driver updates. Win7 install is about 5 months old.

Could you be bumping the desk and moving the mouse at all? Is there a fan or such object that would cause the mouse to move?
Try closing all of those applications to see if the behavior persists. If it doesn't, the trouble likely resides with one of them.
Let me know how this works and I'll see about trying something else if it doesn't
