Windows 7: Macbook Pro won't stay asleep!

Macbook Pro won't stay asleep!

This problem has been driving me crazy since build 7000 - I've also tried 7022, 7057 and now 7068 and have the same issue. When I shut the macbook it goes to sleep like normal... but when i plug the computer in it wakes up again! I can see that the screen is turned on and I have to open and then shut the laptop to get it to go back to sleep. I haven't installed any power management drivers (are there any for macs?) - could that be it? Thanks in advance for any help, once I get this solved I'll never have to boot to OsX!

Well, first of all, can you tell us are you using Parallels, VMWare, or Boot Camp or something else to boot into Win7, and 2 - is there an updated version of he BC tools for Windows on the apple site?

Thanks for the reply - I'm running bootcamp. I looked for updated bootcamp drivers but don't see any other than the multitouch trackpad drivers available for download. The macbook is pretty new (line from the end of last year; 15 inch core2 duo) so I think the drivers I installed are fairly up to date. Also I can't find any type of "power management" driver at all (even on the osx cd). I could be missing something though, I'm not really a mac guy.
