Windows 10: Computer keeps waking from sleep within 2 minutes every single time

    Computer keeps waking from sleep within 2 minutes every single time

    I need help bad. I have searched the forums and online and have tried everything under the sun that has been suggested but my computer simply will not stay sleeping. It promptly wakes up within 2 minutes. I tried hibernating it and it still wakes up. I have been through all the settings in device manager to make sure nothing is keeping it from sleeping. I have been to the computer management and gone through there to make sure nothing is keeping it awake.... Anything I have found and changed still doesn't work. I also went to power troubleshooting and it told me my screen saver was keeping my computer from saving power. I turned it off and restarted it for extra measure and no go....After that I even did the power troubleshooter again and it still said that the screen saver was keeping my computer from saving power.....funny....the screen saver is OFF..... I even went into power settings and turned disabled the sleep timers... No luck.. Can someone PLEASE help me... Thanks a million in advance....

    I'm sorry that no one can help...I said in my first post that I had searched the forums and tried everything to no avail... But it just doesn't work to have a desktop that you have to shut down everytime you are done using it.
    I tried the command powerfg-last wake and this is what I found but I need someone to tell me what to do about it..Click image for larger version.

    The usual fix is to check every peripheral in Device Manager and deselect "Enable this hardware to wake the PC". Also disable Wake on LAN and disable Wake Timers in the Power Plan. I wonder from your powercfg report whether you have a bad connection between your power button and your motherboard - perhaps check for loose connections?

    (It is easier to suggest sthg given specific evidence. It is extremely hard to think what to suggest when someone says 'I've tried everything' since whatever one then suggests gets the response 'I've already tried that'. Hope you appreciate that. Thanks.)

    I have gone through the device manager and disabled the auto timers, but we have been having intermittent network issues and Dell is now coming out to replace our network card cause it is malfunctioning so I am wondering if there could be a link connected with that somehow. I have also gone through device manager to make sure that "allow to wake computer is not checked". Found nothing there. I went through SCHEDULED TASKS>MICROSOFT>WINDOWS and looked through all the conditions to see if anything was checked to wake this computer... but couldn't seem to find anything there either.. Also unchecked the quick boot option in power settings but that didn't do it either... Thanks everyone for your input!:)
