This question covers one reason a computer might immediately wake after suspend: How do I prevent immediate wake up from suspend?

I seem to have a different one. After a recent security patch update on Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal, the machine wakes up immediately after suspending. The relevant log lines seem to be:

Can you please state what log file you're looking at (incl the path)? That way, others who are learning to navigate Linux can follow along. Thanks! :) –  Nathan J. Brauer 2 days ago

Well, sd 0:0:1:0 is most likely a USB drive which doesn't play nicely with suspend. Just remove it when you're not using it.
