Windows 7: Computer Keeps waking up from hibernation

Computer Keeps waking up from hibernation

I have a Lenovo laptop that recently decided to not stay hibernated. It will randomly wake up, seemingly moreso when I have a USB device like a keyboard plugged in. I thought that it might be the "Alllow USB device to charge when the computer is off" setting in BIOS, but after I made sure that setting and the Intel "randomly wake up" (smart connect or something, introduced with haswell CPUs) thing was off, it still wakes up randomly, even with all USB devices removed. What else could be causing this?

Check your network adapter properties and see if this setting is turned off:

I checked the event log. This is what the details for one of the offending times was:

EffectiveState 5    

WakeSourceType 0

WakeTimerContextLength 0    


I'm not sure what I'm supposed to gather from that.

But yes, two of my network adapters were allowed to wake the computer. Fingers crossed that was it.

Waking up from hibernation, SATA HDD not detected
I'm not sure, if it is the write place for this thread, because I think it's completely hardware related. But possibly I'm wrong and it is about the OS too. So my problem is, when I wake up my PC from hibernation, it doesn't detect my only HDD at all. If I soft reset it, it works and if I boot...
