Wakeing Up The Computer

Hello,
My computer is on the same account as my nephew's. Mine is wired, his is wireless. I keep mine on sleep but when he activates his, it wakes up my computer. how can I prevent this?
I keep it on sleep for late night activation by task scheduler to run defrag which can take 45 minutes or more to finish.

Right click My Computer and select Properties. Find (Hardware) Device Manager. Click the plus sign next to Network Adapters and select Properties. Right click the network card and select Properties, then Power Management. Uncheck the appropriate boxes.

Question: Why are you running defrag every night? This really taxes the hard drive. If you're concerned about fragmentation, run the analyzer every few weeks and let the machine decide when it needs to be defragged.

I 'll follow your advise. I posted wrong; I meant weekly.
