I asked what a NIC was in the other thread no response.
is a NIC a network adaptor? if yes I don't have a network adaptor or I used to have a PCIe WIFI card that had a small antenna on back of PC it did'nt work well inside my TV cabinet so I logicalley removed it then physically removed it three years ago.
I have a silicon dust tuner connected to the ethernet cat5 connection on back of PC.
and for internet I have a USB network adaptor.
edit actualley I may have a network adaptor
in device manager
network adapters double click
realtek PCIe GBE family controller double click
I unchecked allow this device to wake PC
I have logicalley and physicalley removed this WIFI card three years ago anyway it's now unchecked will report back if it was the solution.
edit again also in NIC under advanced tab I do see wake on magic packets (well I must admit when I initialley read about this I thought it was a joke however it's actualley real computer termanogoly)
anyway it's set to enable.
this link is non functioning

I see this http://slicksolutions.eu/mst.shtml
however it's designed for XP OS and lower. I'm using W7.
edit I am in the habit of closing W7MC before a scheduled TV recording however there have been occasions where I left W7MC on and even w/ it on PC would always sleep after recordings.
edit again I before I put PC to sleep (at desk top) I turn off the optical mouse it has a switch on the bottom then place it in it's own little cubby hole so it won't get bumped and the key broad (is rarely even used) also has a on/ off switch it's usalley turned off also.
edit again remember the automatic updates are turned off allthough when I had then turned on PC would wake from sleep at 6:00am do it's search for updates then go back to sleep in 15 or so mintues.
hopefully I won't need 3rd party SW
