    Could it be any USB device that's plugged in waking it up?

    Yeah, could just be the mouse moving or something. I would just shut it down and wait the extra few seconds for it to start up

    Is your PC connected wirelessly or ethernet? My old PC used to wake on sleep because of the ethernet controller on the motherboard.

    If you go into your control panel and navigate your way to network connections, and you should see the local area connection adaptor, in most cases it would probably be a Realtek controller. If you right click it and go into its properties and then into configure, there's a power management tab on the far right. It may be checked to allow the device to turn on the computer on any activity.
