I wonder if anyone has had this problem and knows of a fix. I have a media centre computer from HP that I use with the TV etc. I have broadband and I connect via a cable. When I hibernate or sleep, the computer goes into hibernation and comes back on after about 5 seconds. The only way I can get this to work is by disconnecting the modem from the back of the PC then the computer will hibernate/sleep. This works ok, but there must be a beter way??
I also had the same problem with my hp media centre trawled through internet without success yet when I did find the solution it was SO easy why couldn't microsoft or someone tell us? Go to my network connections right click local area connection and then properties,click on configure button click the advanced tab scroll down to Wake on Settings and in the right hand box (mine had wake on OS) and change this to Disabled and my coputer now hibernates until I push the start button. I like the hibernate feature because it shuts down the computer so it only uses a trickle of power and saves about 5 minutes of startup time. I hope this helps you.
