    Change in Wake and Hibernation behavior in v1703


    In Windows 7 and for the entire life of W10 I have used the command cmd.exe /c "exit" to awaken one of my computers at 0600 each morning. I hibernate the computer each evening when done using it. The computer would awaken at 0600 and stay awake.

    Since installing v1703 the computer awakens but unless I perform some operation manually, returns to hibernation in a few minutes. The exact same thing happens if I have a program (Acronis True Image, for instance) wake and perform a backup from hibernation at a given time.

    The power settings are as I used previously: Sleep in 30, Hybrid Sleep Off, Hibernate Never, Wake Timers Enabled. Note that the computer isn't just going to sleep because 30 minutes passes. It returns to hibernation as soon as the particular task completes.

    Any ideas how to restore the pre-v1703 behavior? Is there a new setting someplace that I have missed?

    Thanks.

    Hello ARYLIOA, :)

    Setting System unattended sleep timeout to zero minutes should stop it from returning to hibernate/sleep after the default 2 minute unattended period.

    Thank you. Done. One mistake was searching for hibernate to find the problem since that is what I was experiencing. Sleep seems to have been the key word. I appreciate your fast response.
