Graphics
RX-480 8GB
Ok so, to start off, here is a list of specs:

HP 8300 Elite CMT
3.4ghz i7-3770
16GB DDR3 RAM
Dual boot mac and windows
GTX 1050ti

Worked just fine earlier, but then I re-installed drivers for graphics card to try and solve an unrelated issue.
After restarting the computer and booting back up, whenever I put the computer to sleep, it sleeps for about 30 seconds, then the disc drive (the only spinning drive in the computer) starts up. The light on the disc drive blinks, but the computer doesn't wake until I click the mouse or a key. However, it is annoying and I wanna get to the bottom of the issue.

anyone have any ideas?
