    Auto-start from Sleep Mode

    My Win7 Pro machine starts daily from sleep mode between the hours of 8p and 9p, but I don't need it to auto-start. I went through every entry in Task Scheduler checking the condition tab to see if the option was enabled (checked) for "Wake the computer to run this task", but none were checked. I checked Event Viewer and the first entry recorded after waking up is:

    Log Name: System
    Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-General
    Date: 11/8/2012 8:53:12 AM
    Event ID: 1
    Task Category: None
    Level: Information
    Keywords: Time
    User: N/A
    Computer: Win7pro64bit
    The system time has changed to ‎2012‎-‎11‎-‎08T14:53:12.500000000Z from ‎2012‎-‎11‎-‎08T02:44:14.988335900Z.
    Event Xml:
    <Event xmlns="">
    <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-General" Guid="{A68CA8B7-004F-D7B6-A698-07E2DE0F1F5D}" />
    <TimeCreated SystemTime="2012-11-08T14:53:12.502000100Z" />
    <Correlation />
    <Execution ProcessID="4" ThreadID="68" />
    <Security />
    <Data Name="NewTime">2012-11-08T14:53:12.500000000Z</Data>
    <Data Name="OldTime">2012-11-08T02:44:14.988335900Z</Data>

    Because of the above event I suspected the system was trying to sync the time with an internet time server, but I have that option disabled (see attached screen shot).

    I've updated the antivirus definition files of Microsoft Security Essentials and performed a full scan, but the system is clean.

    Anyone know what else I could look at to find the cause?
