Computer won't stay in sleep mode

My computer won't stay in sleep mode. The computer will sleep for about 5 seconds and then turn back on. Idk if this is an operating system issue or a hardware problem. I have windows 10 and just built my computer. Thank you.

Ah, that age old problem. Have you tried disabling "wake on lan"?

But I'm just confused, like what is that suppose to do for your computer?

Wake on LAN allows your computer to be turned on via messages sent over the internet. This can be a useful feature, but a lot of the time it causes the computer to not be able to shut down due to wifi driver problems.

I gotcha. Thank you for clearing that up. Also, your advice worked. No more randomly waking up. Thank you

It might be peripheral problem. You have a mic or something? It might be picking up signals that keeps it on.

It was working just fine a few days ago and it just started doing it yesterday. I didn't add anything new so idk what it is
