My laptop will not stay “asleep”

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I like to put my laptop to sleep rather than shutting down on occasion but I am finding that it is "waking up" before I want it to.  What could be the cause? It is sitting in a quiet room with nothing to disturb it so I am unsure why this is happening. I suppose I could just shut it all the way down but I'd prefer not to have to do that. Thanks.
