Try looking through this sleep mode troubleshooting guide to see if it
can help you. I would first check to see what is set to be allowed to
wake up your computer in Step Four, then disable the "Wake Up" option
for the one you believe is causing the problem in Step Five. The usual
suspects are the network device and a wireless device.
Hope this helps you,
