laptop randomly comes back from standby

By ksmith ·
I don't usually turn my laptop off during the day when I am going between classes. I usually just close the lid so that it goes into standby. However, occasionally now it has been coming back out of standby while it is still in my case--causing it to get extremely hot.

So far there hasn't been any damage to my machine, but I would like to know any possibilities why my machine is coming back on. I'm running XP media center on it.
I have also tried turning on standby manually before I close the lid. It still happens.

usually it's the other way around where it won't come back on from standby.

This post will give you a bump up the list however!!1

you might look at your wireless settings and program settings. You might have inadvertently set something to wake the computer from standby.
