Windows 7: Uncommanded wake from sleep yet no wake devices or wake timers exist

If you have a bunch of updates to re-apply after restoring, you could install them one at a time, and try to find what causes the problem, if it happens again.
I would do the Windows Updates first, then update other programs you updated since the restore was created.
It's time consuming and tedious, but you might find what caused the problem.

Once again my thanks for the help, especially DavidE's. All software now updated since reverting to a system image of two weeks or so ago and the issue has not returned. The downside is that I don't know what caused it but the upside is that all is good.

Wake from sleep when removing USB devices
I don't really know where to put this question, but here goes.. I have an Acer Aspire laptop with Win7 Professional x64 on it. Whenever my laptop goes to sleep, then I remove any USB device, a mouse or flash drive, it automatically wakes from sleep. Any way I can prevent this? Thanks.
