    I assume that you use USB devices like mouse and keyboard. Go to these devices in control panel and uncheck "computer can power down to save energy" (I only have German version so words can differ ) in properties tab and reboot.
    If box is unchecked " blabla ... can wake up computer from sleep" check this box
