    Probably... (I am not 100% sure)
    they may be the cause of my system not properly shutting down, but going to sleep instead.

    In the Device Manager, right click the respective item, properties, tab [Power Management] should I then untag both

    - Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power- Allow this device to wake the computer

    Any drawbacks?

    You could always take a "try it and see" approach to changing those specific settings. FWIW, I do have WOL turned on, but I have the power control "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" turned off. The latter seems to be most strongly related to "difficulties sleeping" in my experience.

    Many thanks indeed!

    I have disabled all the items successfully.

    Did not manage to disable the Internet Cards, they remained listed when running Powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
    Until I disabled hibernate.
    After that they were not listed anymore.

    There was a specific reason for disabling all this, but that is a long story.

    Thanks again!

    Glad you got it sorted. Remember: with a current backup and knowledge of how to restore your OS, as long as you have time to perform a restore if needed, you can try just about anything out with nothing to lose but time, and a LOT to learn along the way.
    Good work!
