    computer automatically wakes up from sleep


    I've searched the board and found many similar problems to mine, but nothing exactly like it, and as such I haven't been able to fix it.

    When put in sleep mode, my computer automatically wakes up at a set time.
    I have disabled wake timers in the power menu, I have clicked of "allow [this device] to wake up the computer" on every applicable device (mouse, keyboard, HID-compliant device, NIC...)

    Here's what the CMD-prompt says about armed devices:

    As for the wake timers themselves:

    since this a Windows process I can't just shut it down.
    I can't seem to find it in the Task scheduler though...

    for completion, lastwake:

    anyone have any idea what to do about this timer? :/

    That's a task for the Media Center that is waking your PC.

    Windows 10 doesn't come with Media Center, so you can delete all Scheduled Tasks about this program. (I had the same thing on my desktop, because I used Media Center with Windows 8.1)

    Do the following things:

    • Open "Computer Management" (Win-X -> g)
    • Go to "Task Scheduler" -> "Task Scheduler Library" -> "Microsoft" -> "Windows" -> "Media Center"
    • Delete all tasks mentioned under "Media Center"
    • Right click on "Media Center" and then "Delete Folder"

    This task won't wake your PC anymore.

    Almost forgot. If you can't delete "Media Center", it can be because there is still another folder inside this folder. You can find it at C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows\Media Center.

    did all that, result still the same.

    The first activity that the event viewer logs is that my virusscanner (McAfee) does something:

    bottomline is the last action of the day before. I put the computer to sleep about that time.
