You can stop it by disabling Bluetooth from being able to wake your machine. In System Preferences, go to the Bluetooth pane and uncheck Allow Bluetooth Devices To Wake This Computer. :)

What mad jew said, and I'll add that it's a feature, not a problem, that lets you wake your PB with the lid closed when it's connected to an external monitor and controlled by a bluetooth mouse and keyboard.
