    I haven't got 10 installed yet. May I suggest someone post the non sleep issue here: https://www.tenforums.com/general-dis...tml#post151233

    And make sure it's entered into the feedback app.

    I posted this in post #86 in bugs thread.

    Tried the feedback app but I had trouble with it. Will try again.

    Tried a clean install on a different disk on my machine. Problem was there as well. Was even worse as the srvnet request was there as well! Also media player sharing was active. Gave up as definitely not a solution.

    But why doesn't everyone see this update request problem? That is the big mystery.

    Auto sleep is working for me with Win 10 as a VM.
    I got 3 Windows Updates right after I clean installed Win 10.
    I haven't got any Windows Updates since then.
    I have not seen any requests whenever I checked for them.

    Make sure all of the other bases are covered. For instance, turn off waking with mouse, remove all power options with network adapter, make sure Homegroup is running properly, and sometimes a web page will prevent sleep so close down all windows before leaving (for now anyways). You need to go through that list I set up on post 167? on our old sleep page. Some of those still bit me on Win10 until I got all of them set properly.

    Edit: after forcing maintenance twice, that dawn svchost is still sending request to prevent my PC from sleep. I guess it can't be helped for now, unless a super duper amazing guy shows up and tell us how to get around it. XD
    Orbital, are we able to submit bugs on Connect with this Preview? I ask because I have only had Win10 (Wowser, I made a rhyme!) on my laptop for about 24 hours and have been out of the house and/or asleep for about half of that time.

    @Wyn. Yep, it's a bit like belonging to a "grumpy old man's" club!!

    I have registered the sticky svchost problem on the feedback app. Several others seem to have the same problem.

    Yeah, all those things are set but the real problem for me is that win 10 sleep is working perfectly! It sleeps fine with no request registered and it won't sleep when there is a request registered. This is exactly as the designers intended.

    But there is just the problem that the svchost request doesn't get cancelled when it clearly should. There seems nothing I can do about that. Tried override but that didn't work - maybe not in right format. Just happened again 40 min ago when updates went through. Totally reliable!

    Anyway, this has been registered in feedback so just hope it gets attended to. Soon would be good but certainly before it gets released.

    PS I am not moaning. I know what this tech review is all about and I have done my best to document the failure point in my system and have sent the feedback. Win 10 is a fine OS and will be even better at RTM (hopefully with the svchost problem sorted!!!).
