CryptSvc? awakes the computer

Hi, new here :)

I'm using S3 sleep in a standard win 7 with windows media center. I want to use my remote to bring the computer/media center into/out off sleep. But after just af few minutes of sleep something awakes the system. I found out that this Service awakes the system :

SYSTEM:[SERVICE] \Device\HarddiskVolume1\Windows\System32\svchost.exe (CryptSvc)

is there something I can do to avoid this service to awake the system ?

start >> "power options". On the current plan, select change plan settings, then "Change Advanced Power Settings" From here, expand "Sleep" and then "Wake timers" and disable wake timers. Hope this helps.
