Solved Trouble shooting a wake up from standby position

My laptop awakes from standby spontaneously even though I didn't set any program to wake it up. I noticed that if I disconnect it from the broadbank cable it doesnt wake up anymore. I also noticed that the programs which wake it up are mostly related to internet use like firefox, Tor browser and some windows related processes. Even if I stop those programs I still get that problem. How do I trouble shoot that?

Okay, Go to your device manager, go to your network adapter, right click on it and go to properties.
