    Tested this for about 45 minutes and the computer stayed asleep. It looks like that was the issue! Thanks everyone here for your help! This is one of the more active forums I have been on.
    Left on sleep for about 4 hours today. Came home, checked EventLog and sure enough, ethernet is causing it to wake every 15 mins again. Very inconvenient but I guess I will have to unplug the ethernet cord everytime I'm not using the computer.

    Tylr,

    Did you check to see if what I posted may help? It may have a listed device that you can disable to stop it.

    Hi there. I checked what devices can wake it in cmd, but all that are listed are my mouse and keyboard. I also know those aren't moving, there are both in a enclosed drawer.

    Does your computer support connects standby? If so, see if that is enabled.

    Your ISP may have a user forum. See if others are reporting the 15 minute disconnects. Perhaps there is a work-around posted there.

    Can't find anything on the forums. If it helps at all, when using the computer I don't actually ever lose connection. I'm not sure if there is a disconnect and it is so brief it doesn't effect anything, or if somehow while sleeping my computer thinks there is one.

    Tylr,

    You can type the command below in a command prompt and press Enter like below to see if your system supports connected standby or not.

    powercfg /A

    I got the same result as you. It says it is not supported.

    Well, at least that's ruled out.
