Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i'm using opensuse (leap) and it goes to sleep after a half hour of inactivity like i set it, but starts back up after sleeping for maybe 5-15 seconds (happens on hibernate too pretty sure).
it doesn't do this when i unplug the internet it stays asleep when i do that so that's somehow the cause. is it waking up because it's always being pinged for updates or something?
other threads i've seen talk about the USB ports being a cause but i'm pretty sure it's the internet since it doesn't happen when it's not connected
not sure if this is something simple or i need to find logs (not sure which ones i am not that knowledgeable). but any help is appreciated thanks
it's been happening pretty much since i installed opensuse so i don't think it's new software i've downloaded like word processors. it could be from an outside program, but i just want to say there's a low chance since it's been like this awhile and i haven't downloaded much software.
the cat5 cable goes to a switch box shared with 1 or 2 other computers, not sure if that has any bearing on the problem.
