Won't hibernate or standby. Turns back on.

Not that I use hibernate or standby modes often, but my desktop won't hibernate or standby. I'll click the hibernate or standby option and immediately after it shuts off it'll turn back on as if someones touched the mouse in standby mode. Now, I am 100% positive I'm not hitting keys or moving the mouse after I click standby. :) Even so, hibernate mode shouldn't turn back on with a key touch or courser movement. Not a extreme problem, but I would like to use these options once and a while.

PS. When I leave my computer on long enough so that the power options let it go to hibernate mode, it will hibernate like normal. Weird, huh?

Hi IrrevocableXenophile!

Lets take a look at what is starting up when your computer does. Please download HiJackThis, install it, and double-click on the HiJackThis.exe icon. On the first screen click on Open the Misc Tools Section...On the next screen, click on the Generate StartupList log button and post a copy of the log here. You need not check either of the boxes next to this button.

No, you can stay here. It has nothing to do with Malware, but rather with an item (aka process) that is constantly running in the background. I don't see the usual culprits listed and I am at work, so I don't have the free time to investigate it further right now. I will check it out later if I have time while at work, or tonight when I get home.

One thing you could check now, is to go into your computer's BIOS (aka Setup) and see if the option for Wake On Lan is enabled. If so, disable it. An easy way to see if this is indeed the culprit, is to remove the network cable from the back of your computer and then try to go into hibernate/standby.
