    Windows wakes to Movies & TV app.


    14965 32 bit
    Peculiar thing. After putting the system to sleep, when waking I find the Movies & TV app running. I do use the app for downloaded YouTube videos but it is not set to auto start. Not doing a lot of harm but what's going on? And how do I prevent it?

    OK, i "fixed" it by uninstalling Movies & TV. Still, if you have any info on why it would do this I'd really like to know.

    ...because media starts playing and computers now-a-days are like humans; they get interest of wanting to watch the movies and television. Computer gets bored of sleeping and wants to wake up for some entertainment

    I'm aware of the psychic unrest of my computer and how it yearns for diversion. However it's efforts are futile; the Movies & TV app appears but with no content. But you shed light on a common complaint: computer waking from sleep with no apparent cause. Evidently the old box doesn't sleep well. Perhaps it has bad dreams. Or a lumpy mattress.
