HUGE packets sent after hibernate

Forgive me if this has been covered...I searched and found nothing...

If I restart my network, my sent/receive stays fairly even for as long as I'm connected, but if I hibernate my machine, even for 1 minute, when I come back up, my sent is like 4 billion and received is unchanged.

I've run spyware and I have PortExplorer, but can't seem to figure out what's doing it.

An obviously related problem, is my router showing an active connection even while my computer is hibernating. Only if I shut down does it go out.

I consider myself fairly experienced, but by no means a true expert with computers/networking.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Wish I could help in this one. When the pc hibernates, I believe that the power is actually completely off, so the fact that it is somehow sending packets is extremely strange. Maybe try swapping out the network card and see what happens. Let me know if you find anything out or have any new info. I'm curious.
