Windows 10: System turns off at night while in sleep mode

    System turns off at night while in sleep mode


    I updated to W10 and have had no problems and this one really isn't a big deal but it's got my OCD going.
    I have sleep set after 25 minutes and that seems to work fine. It comes out of sleep pretty well too. But, it seems that ovenight, the system shuts down on it's own.
    I've looked at the logs and scheduler and it seems that the UpdateOrchestrator was set at 3:30 am so I changed that time to 6:30 PM and the system turned off overnight again.
    So, I left it awake one night and it did not shut off. Tried again the next night and it turned off. I'm going to try to remove the schedule entirely but from what I've read over the last few weeks, it will create a new task again.

    I've got no idea what UpdateOrchestrator really does despite all my googling and don't have this problem on any other PC so I'm wondering if it has to do with hardware. WhoCrashed does not report any crashes at all. Nor do the logs tell me anything.
    Anyone got any ideas?
    Thanks in advance!

    In the advance power options, expand the sleep entry, then expand hibernate, the default is 180 min, you can change it.

    Thanks, I'll try that but I've not had hibernate active, only sleep. In the past I've had problems in W7 and W8.1 with hibernation not waking the machine so that my tv tuner will work. It works fine in sleep but not hibernate.
    However, I'll give this a shot.

    I'm with you on hibernate, I've never liked it on a desktop computer for the same reason you mention. I just checked two of my desktop computers and hibernate is set to never, one is an upgrade to Win 10, the other is a clean install of Win 10. My laptop is a clean install of Win 10 and hibernate is set to 180 min. On all three computers the first thing that I did after install of Win 10 was to change the power setting for when to sleep to never.

    Came home from work and my battery backup box was beeping.  I replaced it but now I wonder if that has been my problem. We'll see in a night or two.

    Well, it's back to the same problem after a few days but it seems to only do this if I manually put the box to sleep. If it sleeps on its own, I don't seem to have this problem as often.
    I read a ZDNet blog by Mary Jo that she's having similar problems so maybe it's a W10 hardware problem and I'll need a few updates to get this figured out.

    I'm having the same exact problem on a brand new build with fresh install of Win10. I've already tried changing power management several times. Now testing with High Performance settings and changing advanced options under "Sleep" to:

    Sleep After = Never (On Battery & plugged in)
    Allow Hybrid Sleep = Off (On Battery & Plugged in)
    Hibernate After = Never (On Battery & Plugged in)
    Allow wake timers = Disable (On Battery & Plugged in)

    I'll let you know if my PC still turns off at night.

    I keep mine running for remote login so I need it on, other than the Display settings which I have set as:

    "Turn off display after"
    On Battery: Never (since this is a desktop)
    Plugged in: 15 Minutes

    Subscribed. Having the same issue win10 pro x64. Didn't have the problem with an upgrade from 7 but I then did a fresh install and when I sleep the PC, it powers off. Seems like this is a bug and pretty annoying too.

    Hey so i may have solved the issue. YMMV but in power options i stopped windows from adjusting Pcie link speed and now I can use sleep. You guys want to try that and report back?

    What exactly does that mean? How do you do that?
