    Windows 10 wont sleep automatically


    Yes I have searched so don't yell at me yet.

    The PC wont sleep. It's not that it goes to sleep and wakes up, it just wont sleep.

    Here's what I have done so far.

    Went to advanced power options and turned off that when sharing media keep PC awake thing.

    Played with the when to sleep settings from 4 hours to 25 minutes.

    Run in an elevated command prompt the /lastwake thing. Nothing.

    My network adapters are not set to allow them to wake the PC, but again the PC isn't even going to sleep so nothing has the chance to wake things up.

    Looked through the system log for powertroubleshooting entries, nope, nothing.

    Unplugged my mouse because hey why not maybe the mouse is keeping it awake, nope.

    So anyone have ideas? Where do I go from here?

    As an update, the computer sleeps just fine if you do it manually. I set it to sleep last night and it remained that way until I woke up this morning and pushed the power button.

    Is your BIOS up to date?

    What would that have to do with Windows 10 sleeping? Serious question, not snarky.

    My PC used to sleep but then something changed. I have tried uninstalling everything I put on over the past few weeks but its not doing a thing. But like I said, it sleeps just fine when I do it manually, nothing is waking it up.

    After having pc sleep issues myself I came to understand from trawling forums that in some instances it was a BIOS issue
    I appreciate it was working but such an issue can be a consequence of something else changing, e.g. the OS etc.
    Without knowing that exact cause a way forward is to update what you know to be out of out of date, the BIOS is a good place to start

    I have updated my bios to whatever is current as of right now.

    PC slept fine again last night, no wake issues at all. Will find out later today if it goes to sleep automatically but I am not hopeful.

    Did you check to see if it goes into hibernation?

    Try powercfg -requests from an elevated Command Prompt. Hopefully it will show what is preventing sleep.

    I found my Win 10 computer would not sleep for the exact same reasons my Win 8.1 won't, certain processes are preventing it. Once I set exclusions it sleeps fine. I do have another issue related to sleep but it is off topic.

    Here is what that is showing right now:



    C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg -requests
    DISPLAY:
    None.


    SYSTEM:
    [DRIVER] \FileSystem\srvnet
    An active remote client has recently sent requests to this machine.


    AWAYMODE:
    None.


    EXECUTION:
    None.


    PERFBOOST:
    None.

    I bet you have a Homegroup set up. If you choose you can easily set an exclusion for what is preventing sleep. But be aware the computer will sleep even if your other computers are communicating with it so if that is important don't set the exclusion.

    Again at the elevated Command Prompt enter:

    powercfg -requestsoverride DRIVER "srvnet" SYSTEM (make sure to use the quotes around srvnet)

    To be double sure you could also enter:

    powercfg -requestsoverride DRIVER "\FileSystem\srvnet" SYSTEM (again make sure to use the quotes) but I think the first command is really all you need.
