Thumbs up Waking Computer

I am running windows 7 on Dell Optiplex 755 and whenever it goes to sleep it will wake in a few minutes and stay awake.
When I run "Powercfg -Lastwake" I get the result "Intel R 82566DM-2 Gigabit network Connection"
Please advise what that mean and how to correct it.?

Well your network card is waking it up.

Your wake on Lan is enabled.
  1. Click Start, type Network and Sharing Center in the Start Search box, and then press Enter.
  2. On the Tasks bar, click Change adapter settings.
  3. Right-click the network adapter that you want to configure, and then click Properties. For example, right-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.
  4. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  5. Click Configure.
  6. If the network adapter supports WOL, click to select the Allow this device to wake the computer check box on the Power Management tab, select the Only allow a magic packet to wake the computer check box, and then click OK
