MacBook Pro spontaneously wakes from sleep after upgrading to Leopard?

Message #1 - Posted 2007/10/31 - Gary King

For some reason, after I upgraded to Leopard, then whenever I put my MacBook Pro to sleep, it spontaneously wakes up after some time (can be from a few minutes to an hour or two.) I don't know why this is happening, but I know for sure that it's related to Leopard since I put my laptop to sleep every night (it's in my bedroom) and after upgrading to Leopard, it started to just wake up a short while after putting it to sleep.

At first I thought it could be Time Machine, so I disconnected all my external drives, but that didn't seem to work.

Does anyone know why this is happening?
Thanks in advance!

You have *nothing* connected to the Mac except the power cord? I had the same experience with Tiger when I hadn't turned off the Bluetooth mouse. Bluetooth wakes the machine from sleep. Perhaps you have some BT peripherical or wireless-something that wakes it up. Just my ideas...
