    Not sure what it could be since all it had listed was the NIC as the wake source.

    You could try unchecking the box and disconnecting or turning off all network devices, then testing to see if it will wake up after connecting each back one at a time to see one may be the culprit.

PC wakes up on its own, then goes back to sleep soon after
This began recently (with the 8.1 update). It'll wake up out of the blue (the monitor doesn't seem to turn on until I wiggle the mouse though) and then after like a minute it's back to sleep. I disabled the mouse from being able to wake it up and it's still doing it. Any ideas?
