PC wakes immediately after sleep

This is my first post to this forum, so this is hello! Obviously my problem is my pc wont sleep, it wakes a second or two after I press sleep. I checked google and this forum for a few hours and come up empty handed. Event viewer has no record of the pc even going into sleep mode, through the filter "power - troubleshooter". Any help would be appreciated and I can provide more info if needed. Thanks for your time

When I had this problem it turned out to be both the network and mouse causing the computer to wake almost immediately. Disabling Windows' ability to wake on input from these devices solved the problem for me, and hitting any key on the keyboard is no trouble to wake my PC up.

The guide that Brink posted seems to follow the same method that I found elsewhere, and so should clear up your problem

Disabling the Network Adapters ability to wake the PC worked for me. Disable through device manager.
