Default Mini keeps waking up from sleep, overheating in my backpack - 03-30-2009, 10:52 PM

Pretty self-descriptive. I put my mini to sleep, I back to it after I wake up in the morning or when I take it out of my backpack, and somehow it has woken up by itself. Considering I take my mini with me a lot in my backpack, this is a huge problem, seeing as it has now twice crashed due to (I presume) overheating, and I don't really want to stress the system with those kinds of temperatures. Not to mention my battery is then around %14.
I'm running a modified Windows XP, and I'm not running any programs or scheduled tasks that would to my knowledge wake my computer up. Can anyone help me out?

Have you disabled "Wake on USB", "Wake on LAN" etc. in the BIOS?
