Default Computer turns on by itself after being asleep for a few seconds

As the tittle says my computer turns on by itself after a few seconds of being asleep. This issue started happening after I sent it to NCIX for repairs a couple of weeks ago (PSU Died: Computer won't turn at all!)
Anyways, I was wondering if cables connected in the wrong places or loose were causing the issue. Another thing that feels off is the fact that the computer lights on the front are a bit week. Before they were blinking brighter (red) now they give a faint red. Idk maybe it is just me imagining things. :S

If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it.

Since it's a Gigabyte board, I'd start with eliminating the USB ports/devices as the cause.

Their USB charging features are implemented differently and problems involving the non standard USB ports aren't uncommon. But lots of motherboards can have the issue of USB devices bringing a system out of sleep prematurely. I merely suggested eliminating the most common (and probably most likely) cause.

Look in the bios and see if any of the "Wake On" are enabled. Wake on USB, Wake on LAN etc...

What squee said. Turn off the USB wake features, it could be your keyboard/mouse triggering the wake up.

Turn those off and see what happens. I usually wake my PC with a mouse click. You'll just have to use the power button.

I have woken my pc up by simply moving the mouse before, so check those settings in BIOS as previous posters have suggested.
