    PC wakes from sleep during the night

    My pc have been waking from sleep, usually just minutes after putting it to sleep. Is there an easy way to figure out what device is causing it from the lastwake below, without having to go through the device manager? Because I looked there but can't find it. Alternatively, is there a command i can do to disable all devices from waking the PC?

    Wake History Count - 1Wake History [0] Wake Source Count - 1 Wake Source [0] Type: Device Instance Path: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A2AF&SUBSYS_872F1043&REV_00\3&11583659&0&A0 Friendly Name: Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft) Description: USB xHCI Compliant Host Controller Manufacturer: Generic USB xHCI Host Controller

    Execute powercfg /lastwake command to identify the event or device that is responsible for the last waking process. Once the results are shown, check the “Instance Path:” to see where it originated from (the USB or PCI port for instance) and look under “Type:” for the nature of the cause, typically a device or a wake timer.

    Execute powercfg /devicedisablewake “Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft)” command to disable wake for the device.

    If above command wont work, head into your device manager by holding down the Windows-key + R and enter “devmgmt.msc”. In the device manager, search for the the device in question, right-click it and select “Properties”. Then simply switch to the “Power Management” tab and uncheck the box for “Allow this device to wake the computer”.

    I've gone through the device manager and de-selected some devices from being able to wake from sleep. It now says "none" when i use the command "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed"
    But, why does it say PCI\VEN~~ when the reason appears to be a USB device? I have looked for it but can't find the device in the device manager. Would be great to figure out what exactly is causing this

    Is there a reason why you put a desktop PC in sleep? Slow OS drive perhaps. If you have an SSD then I would disable sleep as it would be plenty fast enough at boot.

    I have already disabled that long ago. This isn't caused by a wake timer. But, it's caused by a USB device, apparently

    Over Sensitive Mouse or keyboard (usually only when you have pets with access) The lightest vibration of the mouse can be detected as a movement and trigger wake

    I had one a few years ago and ended up getting into a routine of flipping the mouse onto "it's Back" as I left the desk for the night.

    These days I simply switch of my monitors and leave the system running.

    Yeah, i know. But, this started just a few days ago after years with no issues. I did however disable my mouse's ability to wake it, just in case, that changed nothing, though. The keyboard is mechanical, i do not think it is the cause, but i have disabled its wake ability as well

    give ---sfc /scannow---and ---dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth---a try and see if a file is corrupt.
