    Win 10 has sleep apnea


    I place my computer into sleep mode. 5 minutes, 20 minutes, 2 hours, four hours or more, the computer wakes up on its own. There seems to be no prediction as to when it will happen again.

    I was told to run CMD in admin mode with two powercfg commands as follows and have the following results.

    CMD: powercfg lastwake which reports Realtek
    CMD: :power -requests and all four entries report "none"
    Any other suggestions?

    Check Event Viewer logs and track down the KernelPower entries. Usually there might be an entry for as to the reason why it resumes from sleep. For me, it was Windows Updates that were waking the system up to finish installing/downloading something.

    I am unfamiliar with the Event Viewer but I believe found it. I do not seem to see any logs.
    Tell me where to go....

    Pay specific attention to the error events. The description, the source and the Event ID are the key information.

    Interesting collection of entries. The last reported error occurred over a week ago indicating a "service Control Error 7009 None" and yet my system is activated from sleep almost once every other day. Sometimes twice a day.

    I am told that Realtek should not be waking up the system yet every time the system is activated out of sleep mode, CMD:powercfg lastwake reports Realtek. Coincidence?

    Why did a stupid smily face corrupt my message?

    A :p makes a tongue smiley by default.

    Edit the post, put the :p within [NOPARSE][/NOPARSE] and the smiley will not appear there.

    Most of the event logs are only noise. It is too hard to find the right thing in the heap of the event logs.

    Realtek can wake the computer up.

    Make it sure if it is possible in your computer. Devices - See Devices that are able to Wake Up the Computer
    If Realtek NIC can do it, stop it. Devices - Allow or Prevent to Wake Up Computer

    Let us know the results.

    well, sorry for the ROFL, mate!!! It is the most common thought that Realtek is your Audio device; but it is your networking device provider, too.

    Look at here:

    Ok, I found it. It looks as if that was the problem all along.
    Now if there was a way to switch off my own apnea.

    Strange though after about 15 questions/discussions here and there that no one suggested this.

    P.S. Even on a good day, I hate those faces..... ) :

    I like smileys. But as you dont, I will not use those in your thread.

    Now give it a time. See how it goes. Report us back after a reasonable time.

    For computer related issue, your fellow TF members can help you. But for your physical issue, if you really suffer from it, better you dont neglect and consult with a doctor.
