sure advancedsetup will be along soon.

in the mean time have you any scheduled tasks you set up there a option to wake from sleep you may have ticked however thats only the first thing to check as there are other ways like remotely waking it up from another device so;

have you created any tasks recently and unknowingly left the wake up button ticked.

have you downloaded any software within the time frame thats created any to run and wake your comp on by default.

lastly have you downloaded any new apps that might be sending your comp a wake up call.

 

just covering basics as I know advanced works very hard to sort out folks problems and as said he will not doubt be looking at this when he back  on.

 

you can open task scheduler via press start to search windows or via the run option.press windows key and r to open run then type in the box that opens taskschd.msc there are other ways.

Other reason to take a PC out of sleep...

  • USB event
  • Power button
  • Keyboard keys
  • Ethernet magic packet.
  • BIOS setting to wake at a specified day and time

Look in the BIOS setting for many ways to take a PC out of sleep.
