    Laptop keeps turning on by itself


    I have a toshiba satellite c55d, and ever since I upgraded to windows 10 my laptop keeps turning on by itself every 3-4 hours whenever I close to lid for it to go to sleep mode. I checked everything and everything came out fine. My bios setting was correct as well. Only thing I found was it said "critical battery level", but I always have my battery out and laptop plugged in directly. I tried putting the battery in and not charging and same thing happens. I am not sure what to do anymore. Any help will be great. Thanks

    Not sure if it helps, but my laptop does exactly the same. (At least you are not alone... ) I have mine hibernate when I close the lid and it behaves just as you describe. I think it does this by design. If it worries you, try actually closing it down (switching it off). Because Win 10 boots quicker than most previous versions, this is not as big a deal as it once was.

    Hi, sorry, doubt if anyone will answer this particular thread, as the issue of sleep mode has been discussed so many many times here, whether it be waking up during the night or going to sleep after 3 minutes.

    Please feel free to search the forum for 'sleep' 'waking up' and so on, and if none of those many threads help you please post back with what you've tried.

    Please use the search box at the top.

    Here's one I found for you:
