    Sleep problem

    When I put my desktop PC to sleep, it often wakes up in about a minute.

    Can anyone here tell me how to make the sleep function work properly?

    Thank you for your help.

    Windows 10 (duh)

    Check BIOS settings and disable WOL (Wake-on-LAN). Also disable other wake-up events somewhere around Power Management.
    Mirror it in Windows, by going to Device manager-properties-advanced on your network adapters/printer/mouse/keyboard etc.

    Check your USB devices.
    If you connect them to something like a front-panel, chances are those are powered by +5vsb so it will disrupt the sleep function.
    [there are jumpers on any motherboard to select usb power between +5v rail or +5vsb (sb=stand-by) - consult your manual]
