I didn't get an answer for this and then totally forgot about it but a while ago I actually figured out what was wrong (not really wrong but what was causing it)!
On my computer I have a remote with an IR receiver attached via USB, what was happening was that the receiver kept signaling to wake the computer up so I just put it in a spot that would make it easy for me to unplug when I needed to and then re-plug back in. That was my solution.
I would have posted in the old post but it's locked. I'd just like to make it known that if someone else has this issue and starts looking all over this website or the internet, it might help them find a solution.
