    computer wakes from sleep at night time

    Each morning when I wake up, my computer is on, rather than in sleep mode, as I left it. I have disabled the power of the mouse to wake it. What else can I try to fix this problem?

    Check all likely devices in Device Manager to see what their power management settings are. Also it could be MS updates taking place, or in my case a cat walking across my keyboard at night when keyboard wake up was enabled.

    In Device Manager, disable wake function for ALL keyboard and mouse entries, regardless of how many devices you actually have.
    Also for the network adapter. Same thing.
    If the issue is still there, use this command to determine what last woke up your computer: powercfg -lastwake
    Also this command lists the devices that have the capability of waking up your computer:
    powercfg -devicequery wake_armed

    Confirm that system maintenance is not scheduled for overnight times. (Control Panel > Security and Maintenance > Maitenance > Change Maintenance Settings

    thanks to everyone that provided help with this topic. it is exactly the reason i signed in tonight and having done a search, i found this little nugget and YUP, it not only answered why my system was suddenly waking up but it provided even further information that gives me greater control over when, how and by what. thanks again :)

    I am having the same problem also.

    C:\Windows\system32>powercfg -lastwake
    Wake History Count - 1
    Wake History [0]
    Wake Source Count - 0
    The system has returned from a low power state.

    Sleep Time: ‎2015‎-‎10‎-‎29T10:33:02.836944500Z
    Wake Time: ‎2015‎-‎10‎-‎29T13:33:05.104904600Z

    Wake Source: Unknown
    Scheduled Automatic Maintenance is disabled.

    Both network adapters are not allowed to wake the computer.

    The only thing I haven't done is disabling keyboard/mice. Do I really have to disable them? I like being able to wake up the computer with them. They're stationary, so I don't understand why they would cause the computer to wake up.
