    PC Sleep Issues


    Post W10 Installation - this is driving me insane, my computer constantly wakes up from sleep. It just will not stay asleep no matter what, I thought it was my mouse so I went into my device manager and changed it so it didn't have the ability to wake up my computer. It stopped for a little while at least that's what it seemed, must have been coincidence because now its happening again. Which is weird because I went into power settings and turned "Wake Timers" off completely, it's now switched to disabled. Yet whenever I runcmd and type "powercfg -waketimers" as it reccomends here (http://www.howtogeek.com/122954/how-...-accidentally/) to find out which timers are on. It says something about volume 2 on one of my hdd's, some stuff that doesn't make much sense to me. If you need me to paste the cmd info you're going to have to tell me how. Also when i type "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" it lists "HID Keyboard Device" and "HID Keyboard Device (001)." Maybe the latter is what's waking my computer? I figured that was just another name for my keyboard or something, all I want is my computer to stay asleep and only my corsair keyboard to be able to wake it up. Also everytime it wakes up I type "powercfg -lastwake" into the cmd and it doesn't give me any info. It says "wake history count -1" and the other 2 stats are 0, followed by no text or information. Also I forgot to mention but when it wakes up as of now, the display will actually stay off but the computers lights and everything are on. Whereas before when I thought it was the mouse waking it up, the whole computer would turn back on, display and all. If I've been unclear in any way I'll do my best to help clear any misunderstandings up.

    Why didnt you past both from the beginning? Also make sure under your network card in device manager, the 3rd option is also activated "allow only magic packet to wake up".

    Likely it's Windows updates that are waking your computer up or you have a cat walking across your keyboard at night triggering it. It's likely a case of looking at the power management options in NIC, mouse and KB devices and figuring out the right ones to set or unset (and it's not always logical).

    Not sure what you mean by "Why didnt you past both from the beginning?" Also I turned on "allow only magic packet to wake up". Like you reccomended we'll see what happens

    Cant find out how to disable automatic Windows update and I make sure to push my keyboard and mouse back underneath the overhang of my monitor so my cat can't walk on it, so it's more than likely due to windows update. Also I'm not sure what "NIC" means but I googled around and I think I know what you mean, I'll try this after I did what the other poster mentioned.

    As kanata said it's often the power management options for the NIC (srvnet SYSTEM)
    Also, schedules for any backup s'ware can keep the PC awake
    This can be resolved using the powercfg command, see here

    This problem requires several steps.

    First, edit your BIOS settings (before windows boots). Go to advanced power management options (the name may be different for your motherboard) and disable various options such as Wake on LAN. If you have an option "deep sleep" there, enable it (this option allows waking only after the power button is pressed). In boot options, disable "fast boot" for easy access to BIOS (not related to sleep).

    If you enabled the "deep sleep" option, then go to "Control Panel" --> "Power options" --> "Change settings" for your current power management plan, then select "Change additional settings" (or "Advanced settings"). Set "what power button does" to "sleep" (Note that now you will have to press and hold the power button for several seconds if you want to shut down the computer the hard way.)

    Go to Control Panel ->System and Security->Action Center->Maintenance ->Change maintenance settings
    and uncheck the option "Allow scheduled maintenance to wake up my computer at the scheduled time"

    Launch Windows PowerShell as admin and enter the following script (I don't remember where I found it, big credit to the original writer). This script disables all “wake the computer to run this task” options in Windows task scheduler:
    Code:
    Get-ScheduledTask | ? { $_.Settings.WakeToRun -eq $true -and $_.State -ne "Disabled"} | % { $_.Settings.WakeToRun = $false; Set-ScheduledTask $_ }
    Press Enter to run it (you won't see anything).

    Launch Windows Command Prompt as admin and run this command (copy, paste, and press Enter):
    Code:
    for /F "tokens=*" %A in ('powercfg -devicequery wake_armed') do powercfg -devicedisablewake "%A"
    This command disallows any devices to wake the computer. Now you can verify that the above actions worked.

    While in command prompt, enter the following command to see if any devices are currently allowed to wake the computer:

    Code:
    powercfg /devicequery wake_armed
    also:

    Code:
    powercfg /waketimers
    Finally, in the future, to find out which device/task woke the computer the last time, type this command in Windows Command Prompt (run as admin):
    Code:
    powercfg –lastwake
    Note that sometimes, this action will tell you nothing about who woke the computer (probably some deep system process). In this case, the Windows Event Viewer will also show you a wake event but will not tell you who did it. The above plan can prevent such anonymous waking.

    Finally, to see the list of devices that can wake up the computer in general (regardless of their current wakeup status), run this command in Windows Command Prompt (as admin):
    Code:
    powercfg /devicequery wake_from_any

    ran cmd "powercfg -lastwake" after computer having woken up, what is this?

    C:\Users\Josh>powercfg -lastwake

    also ran "powercfg /waketimers" and got this

    Some device on your usb hub? Just do what Nik said... Or deactivate/disallow any ACPI wakeups at all in your bios.

    Perhaps if you spelled "paste" correctly the first time, you wouldn't need to ask again?

    Regardless, no need to be rude!
