I don't have that setting under the Advanced tab. Only under Power Management.
I should have pointed out the screenshot was relating to an ethernet network adapter and not a wireless one.

Yes, "wired" network adapter, not wireless.

In that case, it might be worthwhile updating your network adapter drivers, and then check if the option under the Advanced tab shows up.

Computer says I have the latest drivers. Intel (the NIC OEM) says my NIC is "unknown".

What are the entries in Event Viewer saying for these most recent wake-ups? Still blaming the network adapter?

Yes.

Wake Source: Device -Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection
No other info I can discern as far as what software may be at the source. I sent MAINGEAR a copy of one of the event logs for one of the wake events. I don't know if they looked at them or not.

At this point (so I can get on with my life) I have set the computer to NOT go to sleep. The screen still goes dark at the prescribed 30 minutes but, the computer does not go to sleep. I'm OK with this for now I guess. The case fans can be heard but no where near the level of my previous Apple G5 jet plane.

Well,

I did download the latest NIC driver, uninstalled the old one and installed the new one. So far, I've gone 11 hours without a WOL issue. This appears to have solved things. I say appears because I had thought I had fixed it before. Awaiting further testing. Please stand by...

EDIT:

I'm marking this as solved as, for the moment, it appears to be.

SOLVED: Laptop wakes itself up from sleep

No BIOS / network adapter settings helped for me.
I found a forum elsewhere fingering the laptop lid.

Sure enough, when I closed the lid on my customer's laptop immediately after telling it to go to sleep and had the lid closed before it had finished going to sleep, it stayed asleep where it had previously only stayed sleeping for a minute, tops.

I went into power options control panel and selected "Change what happens when closing the lid".
I changed it from "sleep" to "Do nothing".
I kept the power switch at "sleep"

Then I kept it open and set it to sleep.
It stayed asleep like a well fed baby.

I closed the lid and opened it. It woke up.
Uh huh.

With the lid open, I put it to sleep again and left it overnight.
Still asleep in the morning.

Hope this helps some of you.

Looks like a defective hardware lid closure switch is at fault. FWIW, this model has a lid without a clasp/hook/latch. This may result in touchier sensitivity. These switches may be more likely to think they are open that a latch that has actual physical, mechanical movement of a full half centimeter to engage and disengage.

Computer freezes after waking up from sleep.
I'm on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit edition. My computer keeps freezing after waking up from sleep; usually the second or third time I do it before I have to do a shut down. It only started happening this week and I haven't downloaded any new software. I ran various virus scanners and nothing showed up.
