Windows 7: Sleep problem

Sleep problem

I had no trouble putting the computer to sleep until yesterday.
It would go to sleep, but 30 seconds later would wake on its own ( mouse shut down)
I did a rollback to 2 days ago when the problem did not exist - same problem.
I checked all my settings as well as Device Mgr - Network adapter ( unchecked "allow to turn off")

Any advice appreciated.
Thanks,
Paul

network adapter should be set as attached pic shows--or else--'any' network activity will wake your machine

Have you checked the event logs? That will show the application that ordered the computer to wake up.

Can you tell me how to do that?
Also, I think the mouse is causing the problem.
Can't set it to "allow to turn off"
Box is greyed out.

I also went into options and set Power button to Sleep.
Still wakes up after 10 secs.

Wireless mice do often cause sleep issues like this.

From an ELEVATED (Run as administrator) Command prompt enter these commands and post back the results.

powercfg -lastwake
powercfg -devicequery wake_armed

Here is the pic.
I also tried Sleep with a hard wi

red mouse (wireless disconnected) - same deal.

I don't know what happened to change this behavior since yesterday.

Here is a command i used to disable MY mouse from waking the PC.

Powercfg -devicedisablewake "HID-compliant mouse (019)"

You will need to replace HID-compliant mouse (019) with the full text for your mouse Microsoft USB ......

Then run powercfg -devicequery wake_armed again to make sure the mouse is not listed.

To access the event logs, hit the Windows key and type event - you'll see Event Viewer in the list. Run that program, and you'll have access to all of the logs. Read through them to find what's causing your computer to wake up.

Can you tell me why the Power button, set to Sleep, also would not work?
