    I just got the new wired aluminum keyboard two day ago, hooked it up to my MBP through my ACD's USB hub. Somehow the computer just keeps waking up from sleep after a while.

    I did an experiment yesterday. Put the computer to sleep mode for entire day and check on it every couple hours. The computer does stay in sleep mode. However, I noticed whenever I have my iPhone nearby, the computer will wake up after a while. Anybody experienced same problem? I did also disabled the bluetooth and wake-for-ethernet.

    This just started happening to me on my imac(non aluminum). I was tripping out and still couldn't figure it out. after the 7 time i figured just a glitch. Interesting. It makes sense, I will test it later on.

    UPDATE:

    I exchanged out the keyboard from the store last week. Haven't had a problem since, I guess I had a faulty keyboard that was sensitive to the interference from the iPhone.
