Obviously, the TV is waking up and doing something in the background and then going back to sleep. This is really annoying.
I bet it's Android TV connecting to Google or some service for some reason.
How can I disable this sort of thing?

I'm not sure you can disable it. Outside of disconnecting from the Internet, stopping any auto-updates and not having any CEC functions present - - I'd suggest using a separate power source for your bias light. That's what I do.
My Sony 900F (and my previous Sony 900E) turns on my AVR randomly. I've tried all the fixes and now, I just live with it. I make sure to turn the audio to a very low level when I turn off the TV and then if it turns on, I just go downstairs to my man cave and shut off my AVR when this happens.
Come to think of it, I could use a manual HDMI switch and put in on the empty location when I go to bed but that would be a pain, as well. If I ever have an AVR in our bedroom, I'm sure I'll have to go to this solution since nobody wants to be randomly woken up by their TV at night!
