I have two pc's that are nearly identical. They are both on windows 10 64bit. Initially one would sleep and one would not go to sleep. Pc a would sleep just fine. At 15 mins it shut off the screen and then went to sleep. PC b would stay awake. I made sure the network cards weren't set to wake the pcs. The only devices that are set to wake the pc's are the mice and keyboards and under windows 7 they have no issues. I disabled allowing them to wake the computers, no dice.
The only difference between the computers was the one that would not sleep had a Microsoft account attached to the windows accounts. This week I installed a program from the Microsoft store and it attached an account to pc a and now it will not go to sleep. I tested and removed the account, and sure enough my computers would go to sleep. But every time I log into the program it re-adds the windows account to the computer. On computer A I can get away with deleting the account and just not using the program. On computer B My kids and wife use about 5 apps that add the account after deleting it. I tested everything they use.
Has anyone else had this issue? Or can anyone out there think of a solution that can let my computers go to sleep, and have a Microsoft account attached to the windows accounts? Thanks lots.
