G4 insomnia - Mac Applications & Software

I'm sure there are probably dozens of possible reasons why my G4/500 (with Comcast cable connection) almost always wakes up immediately after beginning sleep, even with no user apps running. How can I begin to diagnose this problem? Is there a particularly ubiquitous cause for this?...

    Not really. A plain attempt to contact a machine should never wake it up.
    The particular wakeup packets (whatever they are in detail) don't happen
    during normal communications.

    AFAIK a wakeup call must be generated on the machine's LAN and is
    addressed to the MAC address directly.

    That doesn't mean that such packages can't be the cause of the OP's
    problem, but it appears rather unlikely.
