    PC Won't Sleep


    So I've and tried some more and I cannot seem to get my PC to Sleep. I was upgraded to Windows 10 Pro from Windows 7 Ultimate. It's a custom built rig for gaming and streaming movies. Not sure why, but I put it on sleep, I see the PC go down as if it's in sleep mode and then I leave the room. I go by the room again and the PC is back on. Not sure what's going on unless my house is haunted.

    Help is Appreciated

    Thanks

    It's OK, your house is just being used as a set for "The Conjuring 3"

    But on a serious note, this is a Copy and Paste to what I recommended to someone else:

    "I read this elsewhere, someone suggested look in device manager, and see if you can find any unrecognized devices that have "Wake this computer" Ticked, then simply un-tick and apply.

    P.S I recommend trying hibernate, it works just as well "

    Hello sparker,

    In addition, check your wake source log in Event Viewer to see if it may reveal what may be waking up your PC.
