    Windows10 keeps getting waked up by other Win10 PC


    I got a big problem and I've been searching the last days for a solution. I had a Win8.1 PC which acts as a MediaServer for 2 Raspberrys running KODI. I used SmartPower for EnergyManagement and sending the Server to sleep if no files where streamed. I could wake it up from KODI via WOL and all worked well. But now the Server will still go to sleep acording to plan, but keeps getting waked up. Through trial and error I could exclude the Raspberrys as the Source for the wake up call. I got another Windows PC (at first running Win7), who also was connected to one drive from the Server, but there was never any problem that it woke up the server on itself. But now it seems to keep waking up the server. I tried everything, and finally updated both PCs to Win10. But nothing has changed.

    The Server goes to sleep. And if the other PC is up, it keeps waking up the server every 20 minutes via the network card (confirmed via "powercfg -lastwake" on the server). If the other PC is off, the server keeps sleeping, therefore the Raspberrys can't be the source of the wake up call. I already updated all network drivers, but nothing seems to help.

    And all solutions I find on the net go about disabling WOL functionality, which is of course no solution for me, since I still need it to be able to wake up the server from my living room via KODI.

    I already disconnected all network drives from the Server on my other PC, in the case that these would wake up the server (even if they didn't in the past). So now I dont know what else tot try and would be very gratefull for any hints...

    Thanks in advance (and sorry for my bad english)!
