Windows 10: Black screen every Thursday, PC quit sleeping this past week. Solved

    It's not THAT "old" actually, but Asus considers it "EOL" - "end of life", which means they didn't make Windows 10 drivers for it. Phhhhtttt! Cop out. Translation: They want people who upgrade to Windows 10 to have to buy new adapters.

    I'm unable to do that, because AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, the device manager window is still blinking the list up and down, but now, it's off screen for maybe 3 seconds and on screen for maybe half a second, so there's no time to even click on that. Wait...I got it.

    Asus USB-N53. Driver date 10-28-15. Everything was unchecked already. I think someone suggested that before.

    Wait, here's something interesting?:

    Under the Events tab: 9-24-16, all at 2:15 AM:



    Driver Management has concluded the process to add Service netr28ux for Device Instance ID USB\VID_0B05&PID_179D\1.0 with the following status: 0.


    Driver Management has concluded the process to add Service vwifibus for Device Instance ID USB\VID_0B05&PID_179D\1.0 with the following status: 0.


    Driver Management concluded the process to install driver netr28ux.inf_amd64_9d775036bc0afa79\netr28ux.inf for Device Instance ID USB\VID_0B05&PID_179D\1.0 with the following status: 0x0.

    Relevant?

    This got me to poking around some more. There's another USB controller here. I plugged in a 4 port adapter, so I can hang all kinds of stuff on it. Is THAT what the following is?:

    Now THAT has the power stuff checked. Uncheck that too?

    I also have a Conexant USB D400 modem from 2010 but that doesn't appear to have sleep involved settings.

    Snooping around more...my video controller had some stuff going on in September:

    Also have a Logitech wireless keyboard, and separate Logitech wireless mouse that are set to allow them to wake the computer, but I don't think they do. I always have to push the button on the top front of the case.

    That event around 2:15 appears to be a driver installing. Did you shut this process off? Do you have any software like Driver Detective installed to update drivers.

    The device under where you mentioned the kids four port device is your Wired network controller from Realtek. Yes you can disable these as well. You don't get Wake timers on a Lan and the small amount of power you save is minor.

    While you are at it go into the advance settings in your power plan, head to sleep, sub category Wake Timers, Disable. I don't believe you have any scheduled tasks and it does not sound like you remote into system.

    September is a video driver being installed. AMD has dropped support for the HD gear but have provided a last set of drivers. That said there have been quite a few last sets as they work out some things.

    If your keyboard and mouse don't wake machine up no harm in disabling.

    The goal is see see which USB devices is acting up. Modems, Port Extenders (4 for the kids) etc could be the devices hence the request unplug them all and run some controlled tests. Yes it is a pain to have to connect.

    Please also record what you do so it can be undone.

    Nope and nope.

    Ok, did...

    Did that awhile back.

    No. I do transfer photos from my phone, with Airdroid, over the wifi.

    Hmm.

    Please follow my instructions on Disabling Windows Driver Updates. Earlier posting. You don't need to be getting the latest and greatest and in a number of instances this causes people a lot of grief.

    Came home tonight and the sleep situation was the same. Previously, when it went to sleep, it showed 6 watts on the UPS meter. Since this started, it shows about 60 watts, with the monitor off, but apparently the PC remaining on.

    So with all USB devices unplugged, your keyboard / mouse and USB dongle set to do not wake computer you came home and found your computer awake? Did you run powercfg command to see if same gremlin?

    I need to get back into your previous ideas, just haven't had time for all that, and have never set a PC back and am nervous about that - about whether it could disrupt programs installed since then.

    No, the powercfg /requests is showing nothing.

    I think command was powercfg /lastwake

    To id gremlin or in your case gremlins issuing the wake up.

    Hear you. How many programs have you install since December 6th? Sometimes you just got to pull the band aid off.

    Well the first issue is why it hasnt been going to sleep, since that update a couple of weeks ago. Because there are no requests, I'm wondering if Microsoft programmed something to ignore sleep and keep it awake all the time.

    Perhaps I mis-spoke on the wake up. At times, Ive been finding the monitor screen on when I come in, which goes off after 10 minutes.

    The PC hasnt slept though.

    Your powercfg /requests is telling us that nothing is prevent from going to sleep at the time of request.

    Have you restore your power plan to defaults.

    You may also wish to run powercfg /waketimers
    to see if any devices are armed to wake.

    Your machine did go to sleep at least once as you ran powercfg /lastwake and you got the message about hub. Force it to sleep and if it awakens see what woke it up. If Microsoft programed something to prevent sleep the Internet would be buzzing.

    Try restoring your power plan to defaults, reboot and when you are finished tonight force it to sleep.
