Windows XP Standby

Whenever I tell my PC to go into standby mode it wakes up again a few minutes later (although it doesn't turn the monitor on)
Even if I close all programs it still does it.
I am connected to broadband internet and use the zone alarm firewall software.

Any ideas why my PC isn't happy sleeping!!!?

Yep, happens to me as well so I don't bother using it now. XP has a lot of little applications that tend to run in the background, most likely one of these keeps giving it a kick. j.
