Over-sensitive computer( can't sleep for long)
I've just bought a new desktop computer running Vista.
As I used to do with my old one I put it into Sleep mode when I leave it.
This one though is always "awake" fired up and ready when I go into the room.
Sometimes it seems as if it was incoming mail that woke it, sometimes it wants to update something and sometimes it seems as if it is somebody slamming a door in the next road that is all it takes !
It seems to make no difference whether I put it to sleep manually or let it go off on the pre-set power system, after 10 minutes.
All suggestions gratefully received please. It's annoying me !
