Windows 10: Windows 10 wakes up from sleep all by itself Solved

    Windows 10 wakes up from sleep all by itself

    Since a few weeks ago, I have noticed that my Windows 10 64-bit machine wakes up from sleep/hibernation automatically without my intervention. I should mention that I have never had this issue before and that I have not changed the hardware.

    Running "powercfg -lastwake" at the command prompt immediately after such an unwanted wake up indicates the following culprit each and every time:

    Intel (R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port 4 - 1E16

    Can somebody help me to further narrow down the cause?

    What I have tried without success:
    - My system is up to date as per (1) Windows Update, (2) updates proposed on Asrock (Motherboard) website, (3) updates proposed by Intel Driver Update utility
    - I unplugged and immediately replugged all my USB cables but to no avail.
    - Disabling Wake up from magic packets within my ethernet adapters settings.
    - Shutting down a couple of newly installed applications like Bluestacks Android App Launcher running in the background.

    Thanks in advance,

    Had this problem too. Try: From device manager, open the properties of your Ethernet card. On the power management tab, make sure "Allow this device to wake the computer" is unchecked.
