    PC wakes from sleep to sync time and HDMI audio is lost

    For the last couple of weeks, I guess after upgrading to the Windows 10 Pro Preview Build 10586.545 or because of some windows update, I have been experiencing strange issues where, my PC wakes from sleep and the only thing that I can see in event viewer log is about syncing hardware clock with network time. It seems ridiculous that Windows thinks it is OK to wake the computer to sync time ! My PC is a power hungry gaming rig and waking up from sleep and staying on for hours while I am out is going to put a hole in my pocket.

    The other issue is HDMI audio (with Nvidia HDMI Audio Drivers) is lost when the PC wakes from sleep and rebooting is the only thing that fixes it.

    Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

computer wakes from sleep at night time
Each morning when I wake up, my computer is on, rather than in sleep mode, as I left it. I have disabled the power of the mouse to wake it. What else can I try to fix this problem?
