    How do I keep Windows 10 from waking my PC from sleep? (LAN)

    Put my computer to sleep tonight and noticed after about 10 seconds it popped back onto my login screen.

    Ran powercfg -lastwake and found it was my ethernet adapters.

    Now online the tutorials are all showing different buttons than what I have... For what i'm seeing online, there's a simple checkbox for letting the Lan adapter wake your PC or not, I've got... more.

    So, do I uncheck all of them to make sure the lan adapter cannot wake my PC from sleep?

    Thanks! Click image for larger version.

    Hello Woohah, :)

    Unchecking the "Wake on" options should stop that network adapter from waking the PC.

    Maybe it`s because you installed the Asus Network software and driver from the motherboard CD ? If you just let windows update do it, or just grab the Intel drivers off the net and install them, it will look like this.

    I had a real hard time with the Intel network software/driver on the Asus motherboard cd, it kept ruining a fresh Windows 10 install and I would have to reinstall, I have no idea why.

    But I just got the latest NIC software from Asus and now it looks just like yours and works fine.

    Strange the interface looks slightly different as the driver and dates are the same, Asus must add something as their dates and version numbers are different on their site.
