Windows 10: Windows 10 randomly wakes up from sleep. Lastwake empty

    Windows 10 randomly wakes up from sleep. Lastwake empty


    So as the title says, every now and then Windows 10 randomly decides to wake itself up from sleep. It doesn't happen at any consistent time, some days it stays asleep until I actually turn the PC back on. Using powercfg /lastwake just gives me a wake history count and doesn't provide any information.

    I can't figure out why this is happening. I've tried googling it and have found similar complaints but no real solution. It's not hardware that is waking it up and I have already disabled the "allow wake" setting for my network adapters in device manager. Can someone please help?

    Thanks.

    The issue was caused by TeamViewer, it creates wake timers that are somehow ran even though wake timers are disabled. Try to uninstall TeamViewe.

    Yes, I had exactly the same issue and it was caused by TeamViewer.
