    I seem to remember a thread just like this on 8F...

    Windows 10 sleeps just fine for me.

    If you're having trouble here are a few tips.

    1) Make sure to read a bedtime story which has a happy ending.
    2) Fluff up the pillow.
    3) Always remember to tuck him in, otherwise he will feel insecure.
    4) Mine prefers to sleep with a stuffed Snoopy and Charlie Brown blanket.

    I just found my PC awake this morning. :-( The PC wakes itself for maintenance (this is good) but then svchost get stuck in requests and my PC just stays awake. And the override doesn't works. svchost is pearless. XD But still that dawn question bothers me: why some and not others?

    I've installed a 3rd party antivirus to avoid receiving too much windows updates... I'll wait and see if this is working.

    Orbital, click on the Start Button and there's a feedback button at the top right of the popup menu. Click on that and you'll be able to give MS feedback on the issue you're having.

    And if you leave it, it just adds another request for the next update!


    EXECUTION:
    [SERVICE] \Device\HarddiskVolume1\Windows\System32\svchost.exe

    I curious, what are all these Windows Updates you are getting?
    I'm not getting any updates after the first 3 the day I installed Win 10.

    I set up a different Win 10 VM using Windows Defender.
    That one shows the definitions got updated, but there is no entry in Update History for it.

    I haven't seen the svchost.exe request yet...

    Pretty much all my updates (about 4 per day!) are Defender definition ones. These auto updates don't show in the update history you need to use Event log/system to see them.

    Interesting that you don't see the svchost request. Maybe this is because it is a VM?????
