Windows 7: S3 "insomnia" with RC1?

S3 "insomnia" with RC1?

S3 sleep always worked fine for me with Vista. Finally switched to 7 RC1 (7100) and now after sleeping it will randomly wake up 1-2 minutes later. I've dubbed this "insomnia" (i.e. it won't stay asleep). Any ideas?

Is my problem a known issue specific to 7100?

I will try the wake on LAN suggestion... sounds like it might work.

When you get a chance could you fill in your system specs. we need to be able to know what kind of hardware you have to help you.

You don't have to turn off wake-on-LAN (I use WOL all the time, and I'd go crazy if I had to disable it). What you do have to do is make sure that your adapter is set to wake only on a "magic" packet. IIRC, W7RC defaulted to any directed packet, which would cause a lot of spurious wakeups; in RTM, the default was back to magic-only.

Not necessarily. Some people know their way around enough that they can find it. Or they are resourceful enough that they can Google (or Bing :P) it. I give people the benefit of the doubt and assume that, when given a hint about how to solve a problem, that they can muster their own resources to see it to the end. If they can't, they can ask for clarification, but I feel it's generally better to not automatically treat people like children who need spoon-feeding.
