    I've never changed those settings so they are set to the defaults:
    resume by alarm: disabled
    HPET: enabled

    RTC meand Real Time Clock, so I figured they are related.
    Could be that Vista enable it when going to sleep?
    Are there any power options related to the automatic updates?

    In XP it's in automatic updates in My Computer properties, should be in Vista System if it is the same as Windows 7.

    All I can find in Vista automatic updates settings is the time for installing new updates, but not a time to search for and download new updates. ( I do not have the updates install automatically, just downloaded)

    But that's the time it power up isn't it?
    Are there no exlusions there for sleep mode?
    In XP there is a CMOS Real Time clock device in device manager, no power options for it, but maybe in Vista there are?

    I have the auto install updates disabled, so it's time is disabled as well.
    (the download only update does not have a time box)

    Can't find any exclusions for sleep mode anywhere.

    The CMOS device I see in my Vista does not have a power option.

    Do you have Media Center enabled? If so, it may be waking up to download an EPG update. Check your MCE event logs.

    is there any log/event I can see when it went to sleep/woke up and maybe more info on the problem?
    Thanks.
    Hopefully this will help you. I have sleep problems when my OS gets corrupted by overclocking/freezing. The only fix I found was a clean install of windows.

    [IMG]mshelp://Help/?id=Microsoft.Windows.Resources.ExpandArrow[/IMG] My computer unexpectedly wakes from sleep.

    Here are some things that might cause your computer to wake unexpectedly:
    • <LI class=listItem>Opening the lid of your mobile PC
      <LI class=listItem>Moving the mouse or pressing a mouse button
      <LI class=listItem>Pressing a key on the keyboard
      <LI class=listItem>Network activity
      <LI class=listItem>Running a scheduled task
      <LI class=listItem>Plugging in or unplugging a universal serial bus (USB) device
    • Docking or undocking your mobile PC
    To find out what caused your computer to wake from sleep, do the following:
    1. <LI class=step>[IMG]mshelp://help/?id=Microsoft.Windows.Resources.ShellExecuteTopicI con[/IMG]Click to open Event Viewer.* If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
      <LI class=step>Expand Windows Logs, and then click System.
      <LI class=step>In the Actions pane, click Filter Current Log.
      <LI class=step>In the Filter Current Log dialog box, in the Logged list, select the time range.
      <LI class=step>In the Event sources list, select Power-Troubleshooter, and then click OK.
      <LI class=step>In Event Viewer, in the System pane, select the date and time for the event that you want to view.
    2. On the General tab, view the Wake Source for the event.
    If a device, such as a USB device, is causing the problem, you can configure it so that it won’t wake your computer in the future. USB root hub devices are often set to wake your computer because it is required for a mouse click and keyboard button to wake the computer. If you don’t want that to happen, do the following:
    1. <LI class=step>[IMG]mshelp://help/?id=Microsoft.Windows.Resources.ShellExecuteTopicI con[/IMG]Click to open Device Manager.* If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
      <LI class=step>Expand the device type, for example Universal Serial Bus controllers.
      <LI class=step>Right-click the name of the device, and then click Properties.
    2. In the Properties dialog box, click the Power Management tab, clear the Allow this device to wake the computer check box, and then click OK.
      If this check box is not available, contact the device manufacturer for more information.
    1. If a scheduled task woke the computer from sleep, first decide if that is really a problem. Some programs rely on scheduled tasks, so changing those tasks might cause problems with the program or with your computer. If you have questions about why a program is scheduled to wake your computer, contact the program manufacturer. If you are sure that you want to stop the task from waking your computer, do the following:

      <LI class=step>[IMG]mshelp://help/?id=Microsoft.Windows.Resources.ShellExecuteTopicI con[/IMG]Click to open Task Scheduler.* If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
      <LI class=step>In the center pane, scroll down to Active Tasks, and then double-click the task that is waking your computer.
    2. Click the Conditions tab, and then clear the Wake the computer to run this task check box.
      If this check box is not available, contact your system administrator or the software manufacturer for more information.
