    From what I've seen if there is a svchost request auto sleep doesn't work until a reboot to clear the request.
    Same as linw says in Post #67

    I'm using WTP as a VM, and don't use/want auto sleep for the VM.
    VM auto sleep does not sleep the PC for me, just the VM OS ...

    The HOST Win7 OS auto sleep works fine, and sleeps the PC as needed ... including the WTP VM ...

    For anyone wanting auto-sleep I think the workaround/fix is to use some other AV than Windows Defender (WD).
    That should end the daily Windows Update (WD definitions) that create the svchost requests preventing sleep ...

    hth,
    David

    Is it only MS updates that set the power request, David? I haven't yet seen any other s'ware update to check.

    You can't opt out of auto update either!

    Anyway, I am just hopeful that MS will one day look at this and fix it before RTM.
    Lin, I just reset Windows and there was a step that asked me if I wanted to do the auto update thing, which leads me to believe I can actually opt out . . . unless you're saying the Preview won't let me opt out.

    I just solved this on my system today. I was getting the dual svchost.exe entry in powercfg -requests as was indicated in one of the posts.

    In my case, in Device Manager under the Sound, video section, I was showing a HD Audio Device with a yellow triangle. I tracked that device down and it turned out to be the Intel Display Audio for an Intel 4600 Graphics system. Installing the HD 4600 Graphics drivers from the Intel site added that HD Display Driver and the yellow triangle went away and the system started sleeping.

    I suppose my recommendation would be to check the Device Manger for any Code 10 type devices with a yellow triangle, or as showing as Unknown Device.

    Are you saying that the svchost requests don't show up now or that they get cleared? Or???

    My svchost requests are definitely from the win updates. Sometimes they have (wuausrv) after them which is pretty definitive and they only show up after an update.

    No indication of device dvr issues on this PC.

    That's my belief (hope) but I can't confirm it.
    I installed the latest version for everything I installed in WTP, so I haven't had any other software updates yet.
