    Computer won't stay asleep!

    I have a new HP computer with Vista home edition and when I put it to
    "sleep", as soon as the DSL adapter gets any activity, the computer "wakes".
    Is there a way to defeat this? I tried turning off something in the bios
    that sounded like a likely suspect but computer wouldn't go on-line at all.

    Yup.
    1)Click Start-Control Panel
    2)Network and Sharing Center
    3)Manage network connections
    4)Right-Click on connected lan adapter then click on properties of the pop-up menu
    5)Click continue to go into adapter config
    6)Click on configure button under adapter name
    7)Click power management
    8)Uncheck option(s) that have wake on directed packet, wake on magic packet, wake on magic packet filter, etc. stuff like that
    9)Click ok, wake on lan is disabled.

    WOW. That was so straightforward and simple, I don't know why I couldn't
    figure it out.
    Seriously, thanks a million. I REALLY appreciate it!

    Another path to accomplish the same thing:
    Control Panel>Device Manager>Network Adapter>Network
    Connection>Properties--Select "Power Management Tab"--Uncheck All under
    "Wake On Lan"
    This fixed my "won't stay asleep" problem

    Glad to hear that fix works for you. If any other sleep related issues come up, there's an excellent tutorial.

    Re: Computer won't stay asleep!

    i tried the below & the PC still wakes up after a few seconds :-(

    strangely, when the PC is not used for a while, sleep mode works fine after
    a few minutes of use. If i use hte PC for an hour or so, it won't want to
    sleep. Could there be some sort of temperature sensor on teh motherboard that
    trigger teh O/S to wake up, so that the fans get activated ? motherboard =
    Asus P5B deluxe

    any help much appreciated - the PC is in the living room, used as a media
    center & this lack of sleep mode ruins the whole thing :-(

    thx

    S.

    Re: Computer won't stay asleep!

    If you are running Vista or Windows 7 in a desktop environment you may try disabling the wake up feature the keyboard has set as default in the Power Management settings and just rely on the power button to wake up the PC. Here are some steps once you have opened Device Manager:
    1) Scroll to and expand Keyboards
    2) Select your Keyboard and right click Properties
    3) Select the Power Management tab
    4) Uncheck Allow this device to wake up the computer

    That should do it. Keep in mind the mouse is setup the same way.

    Hope this helps.
