Default Computer wakes from sleep mode

Windows 7. My computer just started waking from sleep mode in about 15 minutes after I put in to sleep. It has no adware according to Malwarebytes. I disabled wake from sleep for the wireless mouse and the network card but that didn't help. I did a search for the last device that woke up the computer and it said Microsoft USB Dual Receiver Wireless Keyboard (Mouse and Keyboard Center).
Now that we know that how do I fix the problem and stop it from awakening the computer from sleep? I forgot to mention that it has a PS2 mouse.

Since you mention that it indicated the USB receiver, did you try simply unplugging that and seeing if that fixes the problem? That way you would know 100% for sure that that is causing the problem, and you could go in and prevent it from waking Windows from sleep mode.

You can find out what is waking your computer using the powercfg command. See this thread for more info:
