Processor working during sleep

Hello,
I have upgraded my box, MB CPU and memory (have done this many times without
a hitch), have been running Vista 64 bit very well. What is happening at
first I thought was it was awakning from sleep on it's own, BUT what is
happening is every 5 to 10 minutes, the processor comes on and does disk
activity for around 2 minutes then goes back to sleep. During this the
monitor is dark, and by doing my regular wake up routine, hit space bar or
move the mouse, these movements do nothing and will not wake up the
computer. Then, when it's finished whatever it's doing, and goes back to
sleep, I can wake it normally.
I've run all kinds of scans for virus and malware (OneCare Live and also
PREVX Edge with both have been vey efficient in catching the baddies). I
can't find any task that says it lets this happen, and don't know of anyway
to log something to tell me what is happening.

Any help or suggestions? Please don't treat me like a newbie!

When you start two threads using identical messages within minutes of each

Sorry, Earle, but when I sent the first one, it said there were errors on
the upload!
