I have an Intel Mac Mini (Core Solo), and when I put it to sleep, it wakes up again about three seconds later. I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem, but the software is all up to date.

I tried unplugging everything except the keyboard/mouse, speakers, and power cable to no avail. Any other ideas?

Does your monitor have a built in USB hub or anything like that? Mine does, and my Mini will wake up right after I turn the monitor off if I do it manually. If I just let the Mini kill the display, it sleeps fine.
