    How to View Active Wake Timers in Windows 10

    information   Information
    A wake timer is a timed event that wakes the PC from sleep and hibernate states at a specific time. For example, a task in Task Scheduler set with the "Wake the computer to run this task" check box checked.

    Important wake timers are a new class of wake timer in Windows 10 that includes things like reboots after a Windows update that requires one. They supersede all other settings.

    This tutorial will show you how to view a list of active wake timers set to wake the computer in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to generate a list of active wake timers.



    Here's How:

    1. Open an elevated command prompt.

    2. Enter the command below into the elevated command prompt, and press Enter. (see screenshots below)

    powercfg -waketimers

    Hi Brink , just tried this and am wondering if it should show a list or just one item ?

    The reason I ask is it showed me a task i wanted scheduled but not to wake the computer , so I changed the Task , (I had missed the Wake checkbox) ran the command again to check it was now disabled , but was shown another task , so I disable that one too etc....

    Found this Tutorial looking for info on WOL actually , I guess there is no longer a way in Win10 to make WOL work from Shutdown? only from Sleep Mode.

    Hello KB,

    If your BIOS/UEFI and computer supports it, Wake On LAN can wake a computer from shutdown state. This is a bit old below, but you might see if it may help some.
