Hello guys, I setup my windows to got to standby mode in about 30 minutes if you're not using it, the thing is that it goes to stand by and then in about 5 minutes it comes back without me touching it.

There is not virus, spyware, pop-ups.

Please help.

My system wakes up every five minutes due to my infrared mouse.

Try disabling the internet connection or LAN if you have and check if the same behavior happens.

If you have terminal services running , reinstall it

Do you have anything like an iPaq or other device synching every few minutes?

Do you have a train that comes past and shakes your desk about - thus moving your mouse :)

Is your machine sensitive to sunspots :)

Sorry, too much caffiene...
