Computer nerds...help?

When I shut my laptop it runs constantly after about 4ish hours of sleeping. Any ideas how to fix?

If you have a mac, pushing alt+command+eject for a few seconds should make it go to sleep, and then you can close it. I'd probably just take it in, though, it shouldn't be too hard for them to fix and it'll be a huge pain in the long run to have to do it manually.

I'm pretty good with computers but I don't understand what you're trying to say. The computer won't go to sleep when you shut it or does it automatically come back on after 4 hours? What kind of computer is it?

Yeah, if you could clarify that it would be helpful.

Its a pc. Windows vista I think? Def not windows 8. Anyways I usually don't shut it down. Just close it so it goes to sleep. Then a few hours later I hear it running. When I open it is on the user screen and looks like it restarted itself. If I open it before its running its were I left off.

Does it happen everytime? Do you have auto updates set on it? I think it might be it auto updating. Not sure if it is supposed to or not in sleep mode though. I don't use sleep mode much.
