Default Computer wont stay in sleep mode...

I got a new computer and it is a HP m1070n Media center computer. I want to put it in sleep mode at night but after not even a minute the computer just comes out of sleep mode. I do not touch anything. How can I get my computer to stay in sleep mode?

move the optic mouse off of the multi colored whatever u had it on now.. and put it on something with 1 solid color. like an all balck pad or something... if its on like a desktop table that has tiny ripples/bumps on it, that could cause it to change the lazers focuse o so slitly and make a tiny movment on WINdesktop.
