Windows 7: 7 wakes from sleep

7 wakes from sleep

Ever since I installed the Beta, then throughout various builds up to the current 64 rc 7100. My Studio xps wakes from sleep? Vista 64 premium did not cause this behavior. I've gone through my advanced sleep options and have them set to let the computer sleep even if streaming is present (not that is is when this happens) ....it is not a virus for the above mentioned reasons. All clean iso installs have produced same behavior. Being as I have no operative help I ask my fellow forum users.
TIA,
J23

Could be your network card, have a look at your network card driver
in device manager.

Thanks for replying. Both my network cards are checked such as yours is in png. Curious as to your comment about fixing it until itis broke. I love that kind of approach. Any thoughts as to how I would accomplish such a goal?

I actually have the same problem, and have since 7022. I have checked my network adapter, and it is not checked to wake up the computer. When I go to bed, I always put my comp to sleep, when I wake up in the morning, it's almost always on again. I have checked all the advanced options as well. Maybe it's just a bug.

Was having same problem, check to see if Windows Media Center is waking computer up to check for new TV programming if so uncheck under Settings/Automatic Download Settings to not allow automatic download of Media Center data between the hours of...

Found the culprit through Administrative Tools/Event Viewer/Applications and Services Logs/Media Center...

One thing id like you to consider, check your windows updates, to see when it installs, mine had this problem, that it would turn itself on at 3am, to install updates, and sometimes never turn off..

This is a permanent problem I have been facing since build 7000 & still persist in 7100, its something to do with motherboard/bios settings.

I was just checking on my wifes laptop. She is running in x86. She claims to not have had this issue. Mind you she is not the brightest bulb in the kitchen but I though it worth noting. This could be a 64 bit issue. Anyone running x86 had this issue?

Thanks for the link Shawn. I set it per checklist. Not really much to change but I shall see. I f does not work I feel it is either a bug in the 64 rc or my Cordless laser desktop from Logitech. They were my first thought but I do not want to dl their setpoint SW.
Thanks for the feedback,
