    thank you

    Thanks Brink

    I ran the command and gave me this

    Wake History Count - 1Wake History [0] Wake Source Count - 1 Wake Source [0] Type: Wake Timer Owner: [SERVICE] \Device\HarddiskVolume3\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Acronis\Schedule2\schedul2.exe (AcrSch2Svc)C:\Users\Manny

    I'm guessing its the Acronis, nice little command to know

    Thanks again, thank you to the other user asking me to check BIOS, I did that and reset BIOS :)

    Agreed. It looks like a wake up schedule for Acronis.
