and it goes through its routine and shuts down the computer.
HOWEVER, the computer then decides to fire up again on its own after about 5
minutes of Hibernate shutdown. Note that this problem has never occurred
with my XP laptop, only on my main computer, an HP 17" laptop with 2 gigs
memory, running Vista Home Premium.
Any help resolving this problem would be appreciated.
I solved this same issue with Home Premium by turning of my network adapter when going into sleep mode. My computer used to wake up on its own after a few mins. You can do this in your power settings in Control Panel. Also, turn wireless mouse off (if you have one). This will require you to wake the computer by another means other than moving your mouse.
