    Windows 10 rebooting every night between 4:30 am and 5:00 am


    Windows 10 rebooting every night between 4:30 am and 5:00 am, there is nothing in task scheduler or event viewer that would indicate a reason for this. Can anyone help?

    Try this from a Elevated Command Prompt:

    powercfg /lastwake

    I'm assuming the computer is sleeping at that point?

    Could there be an update that has failed and is trying again every day? The reason I say that it on mine after it updates if it needs a reboot is shows "3:30am looks good" (I turn my computer off when I'm not using it, I just reboot before I shut down for the day if needed by an update) I'm on central time, if you're on eastern time it would be 4:30am maybe, I'm grasping at straws here.

    I have no idea why this would happen without reason, and the reboot after update came to mind. If an update would fail it could continue to try and install by going through the process which may include rebooting.

    Update history would indicate if there was a problem. Settings > Update and Security > Advanced Options > View Your Update History, see if there are any failed updates.
