Unhappy standby/hibernate awakes by itself???

I have a Compaq 6312US that when placed in standby mode, awakens by itself from standby after a few minutes and then goes back into standby (continuous loop). Same for hibernation. It will hibernate and after a few minutes the computer will turn itself back on. I've reset my power options to "never" and tried both standby/hibernate again with same results. I have latest drivers and service packs for OS. I call compaq support, but i get a different tech person (from India) who tells me different info each time. I have reformatted HD twice (most recently last week). Any help would be appreciated.

Hmm let me take a guess here.

My theory is that you have some form of always on internet connection like DSL or cable, and in device manager in your network cards properties, under Power management you have "allow this device to bring the computer out of standby enabled". Make sure thats unchecked.

Look in your BIOS for power management features. You might have "wake on lan/mouse/hard-drve" etc enabled. If you enable "wake on mouse" and walk past your computer, the vibrations can sometimes trigger the mouse and wake the machine up.
