I see a lot of people posting about their computer won't turn on after putting it to sleep, but I have the opposite problem. Mine won't stay asleep. I have it enter sleep mode, it goes to sleep for maybe 30 seconds, then wakes back up. I checked the sleep settings and even disconnected my mouse and keyboard to see if they were sending wake up signals but nothing helped. This only started a few days ago when I accidently put my computer into hibernate instead of sleep. I don't really know what the difference is, but it acted the same as if I had shut it down completely. I turned it on the next day and it worked fine, but later found that my sleep problem started.

Open Command Prompt as Admin (right click on Cmd prompt then on run as admin) enter in Powercfg /lastwake followed by powercfg /waketimers
