Win10: PC wakes up randomly overnight

Last week, I was troubleshooting an issue where my PC starts waking up randomly overnight. Sometimes, it would wake up immediately after going into hibernation.

Apparently I was not alone. Kirk Hamilton from kotaku ran into the same issue as well, and he wrote an article about it. Funny thing is that I went through the exact same troubleshooting process. I was going to document my findings, but now I guess I can just share his article ;)
