Windows 10: Find "Wake up from sleep" Scheduled Tasks
Find "Wake up from sleep" Scheduled Tasks
Other than going through each and every task in the task scheduler, is there a way to see those that are allowed to wake the machine while it is sleeping? My PC woke up this morning at 3:30 am. It then went back to sleep about ten minutes later. I've checked all of the normal things (no auto-maintenance, etc.) so I' suspecting it is a task that woke the PC up.
3:30am is the normal time W10 schedules to restart your PC after an update. Might be worth checking the Update page in Settings and see if your update history shows if anything happened or if a scheduled restart is set.
Hi, to try to address your general query, there seems no easy way, as you may have found.
Whilst you can create a big list like this from a command prompt:
schtasks /query /v /fo CSV > <path>tasks.csv
(replace <path> for somewhere convenient else the file is written to where you were when you launched the command)
...and get a tasks.csv file which you can open in Excel, this doesn't seem to include the wake condition.
People have done that with a complex powershell script.

Every night I turn my computer off using the shut down function, and most mornings I wake up to find it is on. I have tried to fix this by finding out what programs are turning it on in command prompt. When I type,
I have upgraded 5 machines and clean installed 3 machines.
Experienced an issue with one machine with continuous corruption problems
After the 3rd attempt I discovered that even with a Clean Install of Win 10 I get unrepairable errors - Sorry...
