Normaly, this is caused by a setting in the bios : wake on lan or modem - check those.
be sure power options aren't set to go into standby or hibernate
This is occuring on a HP G6000 laptop where wake on LAN is not enabled in the OS network card settings, and there is no sign of wake on LAN in the BIOS. Any ideas?
