Nothing special...switch to High Performance and ensure the drives are always spinning and do not shut off the monitor. Other stuff I adjust are - no USB timeout...and allow Computer to Sleep when sharing media...that's about it.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

I'm having the exact same mysterious issue. i've just now disabled the windows time service, so we'll see how that works out.

i saw in another thread that another reason for the PC waking itself is a dying CMOS battey on the motherboard. you might replace it and see what happens. my pc is going on 5 years old, so that certainly sounds like a possibility. that's my next move.
