One possible cause is that your Network Adapter has APM Mode Wake Up enabled, Automatic Power Managment, so that you can power up the computer remotely. Go to Network Connections, you may need to check both LAN and WAN connections, open Properties, highlight your network device, again choose Properties, check the setting I mentioned to see that it is disabled.
