    Hi Tim/Tekel,

    I copied and pasted your command from your reply above and was running it as administrator. In regards to the mcupdate* stuff I did a system restore point, exported the 2 keys and deleted them and rebooted. Still happened. And I am waiting till tomorrow to see if the avast emergency update is the culprit at this point (task scheduler -> disabled it and rebooted - still disabled). After that Not sure what I will be looking at next.

    This is a long shot, but, check your bios. I have my computer automatically come on early morning to run backups and maintenance through my bios.

    If you read through the thread my system is up 24x7 so it isn't a BIOS issue. It is something, a service or something, that is turning on my monitor around 3am daily....and I have gone over Avast, Malwarebytes, registry stuff (mcupdate and mcupdate_scheduled - removed) amongst other things. I'm still troubleshooting it, just have to wait till next day after a change to see if it's resolved lol.

    Thanks for the thought though!

    I ran it as admin as I always do for anything that needs that required level of permission. I still get error message running that in Powershell.

    I have disabled power diagnostic event and changed system time to tomorrow morning 2:35am and turned monitor off, 30 mins later it is back on. I re-enabled it (since not problem child) and looked at UpdateOrchestrator but that was already disabled so re-enabled it as well. Something is running around 3am daily and under Maintenance I have it set to 8:00am and checkbox to wake system is unchecked. This is really bugging me as I don't need monitor turning on for anything other than me pressing the power button. I will reset monitor to defaults as well but it never *ever* did this in windows 7, only been doing it ever since I updated to Windows 10 via the GWX icon way back in July.

    When I run powercfg -lastwake shows 0, when I look for waketimers it shows None. So those all appear to be disabled and not the culprit. I am surprised not a lot of people are having this issue (it appears there are several but some look to be resolved with power management settings and i've been all through that and device manager to disable anything for wake timers to my knowledge (nic, mice, keyboard, etc).

    Anyone have a command to run to show scheduled tasks with times? I haven't been able to track this down still.

    Here you go, sorted by last run time..

    Get-ScheduledTask | Get-ScheduledTaskInfo | Sort-Object LastRunTime, TaskName | ft TaskName,LastRunTime -auto

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Get-ScheduledTask | Get-ScheduledTaskInfo | Sort-Object  Lastruntime, taskname | ft TaskName,LastRunTime -auto
    TaskName                                                         LastRunTime

    Ran powershell as administrator and this is the result I get running what you posted. There seems to be something amiss somewhere which is causing this error message as I tried running a different command from earlier in this thread and got similar results. I am not a powershell guru so haven't looked into debugging the error message(s) yet.

    Get-ScheduledTask : The system cannot find the file specified.

    That was after running powershell with admin privs and pasting the command into it and running it and above are the results. It could be tied to permissions for powershell. I tried to change it from Restricted to something else but wouldn't let me. Something about a registry key or something. And again was while running it as admin.

    Awww man, don't tell me the commands in PowerShell are sensitive to capitalization on words? I just ran it with upper/lowercase for Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned and it returned with no error/complaint....

    That is not running powershell as Admin - you need to right click and run as administrator. It would then say "Administrator : Windows Powershell" at the top and start in C:\Windows\System32 like this:

    Case doesn't matter. Try running as Administrator (although this command should work as normal user) and also try Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted (but as far as I know that only affects running scripts - not commands.)

    If that doesn't work you may want to open a new thread called "No PowerShell cmdlets recognized" or something like that with the script and a picture of the results. Powershell experts (I'm not one) may not come accross this thread. You want to get it fixed even if it is nothing to do with your original problem I think.
