computer turns on by itself

hi all, so basically most nights when i go to bed i will put my computer on sleep, but recently my computer has been turning itself on during the night, i checked task scheduler and there is nothing there that would trigger this, although i tried the powercfg lastwake command in command prompt and got this

anybody have any ideas?

Hello djmt, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to set your network adapter to have it's Allow this device to wake the computer box unchecked may stop your computer from being woken up by it anymore.

Devices - Allow or Prevent to Wake Up Computer

Hope this helps,
