Windows 7: Sleep constantly resumes

Sleep constantly resumes

I keep hoping that my problem will be resolved in each build, but no.
What happens is that when I put my PC to sleep, it happily does that. Everything switches off correctly.
But, a few seconds later, it wakes up and goes into the login screen.
Works perfectly OK in Vista.
Anyone any ideas? I'm using 7077 x64 but it's been the same with all builds.

Hello Imacken,

You might check the same items here to see if one them may be causing the wake up. The usual culprit is the network adapter power management settings set to "Allow to wake computer" in Device Manager (STEP SIX below).

It worked!
Changing the network adapter settings did the trick.
Thanks a lot.
It's weird that it works OK in Vista though.
