    PC waking from sleep because power button was pressed except it wasn't


    My PC sometimes wakes from sleep, sometimes seconds after being put to sleep without me doing anything. I got the following information from the PowerShell:

    Code:
    Is it telling me that Windows thinks the power button was pressed? Because I certainly didn't (I was the only person in the room when it happened). Could some kind of electrical interference be getting detected by the motherboard through the power button wiring, causing the PC to wake? It's kind of annoying.

    :)

    If your computer does not support Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI), the earlier steps may not be available. In this case, you have press the power button to wake the computer.

    I tried everything that I saw in similar post all over the forums.
    1. All the drivers updated
    2. Turn of all wake timers and allow device to wake up the computer from mouse, keyboard, Realtek PCIe Controller, Wireless AC.
    3. Turn "wake computer" from UpdateOrchestrator in Task Scheduler
    4. Run all the troubleshooters from windows
    5. Reinstalled Windows latest build
    6. Tried on older Windows build

    Has anyone can suggest anything else ?
    It drives me crazy , its suddenly happened and now a can't find any solution
