    Pops out of sleep


    When I set my PC to sleep it comes back on after 30 seconds. Not sure whats going on. It didn't happen with Windows 7. Just seems to be happening now with 8. Any responses would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    So far, solved my own problem again! I will post this to help those who have spent hours trying to figure out this annoying problem! If you have a Samsung SSD and are running Samsung Magician Software, disable it (the software) and you will not pop out of sleep. Don't know why, but this was the problem.
