Windows 7 (64bit) when in sleep turns on and off

I have a bit of a problem,

Im running a Windows 7 64bit computer but as I'm lazy I always put it into Idle. Now there is a problem with this as when Im fast asleep at 4am or any random time the computer powers up you hear all my fans on blue LED's on monitors power up and it wakes me up.

This seems to be going on quite often it will randomly turn on from sleep mode and then go to sleep, does anyone have any suggestions

sounds to me like a USB device waking it up

to fix go to device manager and under each USB devices properites, uncheck "allow this device to wake my pc from sleep"

Yes, and in addition I suggest turning off the "Wake Timers" feature.

Hello guys, I found out what it was... Quite embarrasing...
It was my cat, it was jumping from a tiny high Window onto my room during the night and landing on my keyboard and space bar, turning on the computer... Then the auto sleep must have kicked in.

Everytime this has happened ive been half asleep hahaaha
