Here are the log details (if I'm reading it right, it's my Comcast XFinity router. I've tried unplugging the Ethernet cable, and it says it can't detect wireless networks. Could the constant wake/sleep have killed my wireless network card?)

It says:

Wake Source: Device -Intel(R) Ethernet Connection I217-V

Double check using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to make sure your network adapter is set to now be allowed to wake the computer.

Uncheck the two "Wake on..." options at the bottom, and click on OK. Afterwards, see if you still have the same issue. :)

PC wake immediately after Sleep

I had the same problem. Simple fix here. Went into Device Manager and edited Power Management for the KEYBOARD and the MOUSE, unchecked Allow the device to wake the computer. Fixed.

I believe this was also the cause of intermittent sleep failures before the extender was added. I never nailed it down but I believe sleep would fail when the blu-ray device was powered up. With the extender powered on 24-7 it became much more noticeable. I just didn't make the connection before - no pun intended.

It's been like this since I installed Windows 7. No device is wake armed except for the keyboard but I sure don't press anything (I'd have noticed and wouldn't be here). When I put it to Sleep it sleeps for a second and then wakes up. If I try again, it may sleep without problems but suddenly...
