I put my laptop on standby one night while I had been listening to music on Winamp. At about 01:10 am it woke me up by playing the music that I was listening to. My scheduled tasks does not contain any tasks the wake up the Laptop at that time, and Windows Automatic update has been disabled.

When I had a look at the Event Viewer I saw the following:
The Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service entered the running state.
The source was the Service Control Manager.

Surely this software is for downloading pictures from cameras and the like, so what is it doing waking up my machine at that time?
Any suggestions please
