    Hello unko, :)

    You can uncheck Allow scheduled maintenance to wake up my computer at the scheduled time in Automatic Maintenance settings to stop Windows Update from waking the computer.

    In addition, you can use the methods in the tutorials below to see what woke your computer.

    Go ahead and post your event logs for this to see if anything may stand out, or what may be happening with hibernate.

    ??? All you'll see is that system came out of sleep and source of wake is "S4 hibernation"

    Like you, I don't understand how "S4 hibernation" is the wake source. I was hoping to see something else that may be listed in your event logs.
