    Auto updates are probably waking up your PC which is triggered by network adapters.

    Try going to Device Manager>>> expand Network Adapters >>> right-click on the network device listed >>> Properties.
    On the next window, go to Power Management tab and UNcheck "Allow this device to wake the computer".
    No guarantee but worth a try because it solved my problem (desktop on hibernate waking up at 2am every update).

    You might also change the Allow Wake Timers setting in the Advanced tab of the Power Plan settings
