Default why does network activity block suspend mode?

If there is any network activity going through my laptop's internal
network card or built-in wireless nework card, the laptop will not
enter into suspend mode (standby). If I for example close the web
browser the laptop will enter suspend mode.

Additionally, I have firewalled the adaptors but I get the same result.

My experience with this problem ended up with two possible causes.
The first was poorly written or obsolete drivers for the network chips.
The next was a setting in the network configuration involving the same
sort of settings used for the keyboard and mouse to wake up from standby.
Finally, such obscure things as the Laptop's OEM network related
"helper" apps can cause the problem.

The last time around with an HP laptop (Vista) (New in 2007) it turned
out to be the drivers for the network chips.
