Go into Device Manager > double click on "Network Adaptors" > right click on the adaptor > Properties > Power Management button > uncheck " Allow this device to wake up the computer" --- that's all.

It ignores interrupts that come from the internet and wake up the computer (e.g. when Microsoft wants to install automatic updates - which they often do at night). But don't worry, the updates will come next time you boot the system.
