Let me preface this by saying that I'm an average user. I surf the internet, create documents, and basic things like that. I can attempt troubleshooting by following tutorials/instructions.
I recently upgraded my desktop & laptop to Windows 10. The desktop wakes itself from sleep most of the time since upgrading. This wasn't an issue in Windows 7. The laptop has not displayed this issue to the best of my knowledge.
So far I unchecked the "Allow this device to wake the computer" option in Device Manager--> Network adapters--> Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller--> Properties--> Power Management. I saw that tip somewhere on the net.
Post W10 Installation - my computer constantly wakes up from sleep. It just will not stay asleep no matter what, I thought it was my mouse so I went into my device manager and changed it so it didn't have the ability to wake up my computer. It stopped for a little while at least that's what it seemed, must have been coincidence because now its happening again. Which is weird because I went into power settings and turned "Wake Timers" off completely, it's now switched to disabled. Yet whenever I runcmd and type "powercfg -waketimers" as it reccomended here [URL] .... to find out which timers are on.
It says something about volume 2 on one of my hdd's, some stuff that doesn't make much sense to me. If you need me to paste the cmd info you're going to have to tell me how. Also when i type "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" it lists "HID Keyboard Device" and "HID Keyboard Device (001)." Maybe the latter is what's waking my computer? I figured that was just another name for my keyboard or something, all I want is my computer to stay asleep and only my corsair keyboard to be able to wake it up.
Also everytime it wakes up I type "powercfg -lastwake" into the cmd and it doesn't give me any info. It says "wake history count -1" and the other 2 stats are 0, followed by no text or information. Also I forgot to mention but when it wakes up as of now, the display will actually stay off but the computers lights and everything are on. Whereas before when I thought it was the mouse waking it up, the whole computer would turn back on, display and all.
I have successfully activated hibernate mode (S4), yet whenever the PC is hibernated a shake of the mouse or the press of any key on the keyboard just wakes and turns on the PC. Needless to say I do not want this to happen. Hibernate (S4) works as confirmed by the fact that when it's waken up, the PC goes through the POST phase of the boot before loading W10. In addition a powercfg /a gives the following output
Code: C:WINDOWSsystem32>powercfg /aThe following sleep states are available on this system: Standby (S3) Hibernate Hybrid Sleep Fast Startup
Sleep (S3) works too. Although it seems to have the same effects on the hardware (turns off the CPU fan), the waking up it's much quicker, without POST. In addition, here's the log from Windows event viewer:

With a PS/2 mouse the PC does not wake up from hibernation.Switching the Logitech Unifying receiver between USB 2 and 3 makes no difference.The same mouse and keyboard do not turn on the PC after a complete shut down.
My new Asus Win10 machine with a solid-state hard drive wakes up from sleep refreshingly quickly -- just a couple of seconds. But it takes between 15 and 40 seconds before the Internet connection is re-established. Once the connection is re-established, it works fine. But that delay is annoying. Can I do something to speed up the re-connection?
I don't know where the delay is coming from. My NIC is plugged directly into my Comcast cable modem -- no other routers or the like involved. The NIC on the machine claims to be an "Intel Ethernet Connection (2) 1219-V", running driver version 22.214.171.124, which is claimed to be the current version. The "Power Management" tab in Device Manager for the NIC lists three power-saver options, all of which are enabled (that is, the boxes are checked):
Respond to ARP requests without waking system Respond to NS requests without waking system Energy Efficient Ethernet
(I am attaching a PNG of the Power Management tab.) These options suggest that the NIC should be able to keep the Internet connection alive, even during sleep. So I don't know why I am experiencing a delay in re-establishing the connection.
Desktop Icons move back to the left (default) side of the screen after customizing. this happens when the the computer is put into sleep mode and is woken up or when the monitor is turned off and turned back on. I upgraded to windows 10 Pro 64bit from windows 7 ultimate 64bit. This problem never happened with windows 7.
-Automatic Sleep mode is turned off - when I manually put computer to sleep mode and wake it up the icons are rearranged
-Automatic turn off monitor has been deactivated - when shut off my monitor but keep my computer on and then turn back on the monitor the icons have rearranged
-I have small icons setting
-Auto align icons has been deactivated
-allow themes to change icons has also been deactivated

Are it and maximum processor state useful on a desktop, or is it just for laptops? Lower and Maximum are both set to 100% for me. I read that if I lower the minimum, my cpu doesn't reach the max overclock level.
I upgraded my win 7 to 10 like a month ago, and since then I have a strange problems on my (desktop) computer.
Firstly I noticed the problem with user accounts: I have 3 user accounts, and from time to time everything disappear from my desktop (icons and stuff) and seems like just rebooting works. Then I noticed that I can't view any images, as windows default "Photos" app suddenly stopped working, so my primary photo view app is automatically changed to "TWINUI" - whatever that is. And I can't change it, as the only option I can see is paint o.0 Then I wanted to go to store and see if I can get some other app for this, but now I can't even enter the store - it just doesn't responding at all, no errors, no nothing.
I have a latest win 10 build - and I'm updating it regularly .
Using latest Insider Build 11082 with all updates. On occasion the art/graphics color and text within the desktop icons disappears. The result are icons with a black border but without and graphics. Have run the DISM utilities and SFC /scannow. A re-boot corrects the icons back to a normal state.
My computer will randomly lose power without warning(or at least that's what it acts like). I'm not sure what is causing it, but I tested the power supply with a multimeter and the voltage is well above the needed amount. when it happens, my CPU is never above 38 degrees Celsius. This happens when plugged into a UPS and when plugged directly into the wall. I don't get an error message, and there is no report about it in the event viewer.
I recently upgraded both my laptop and desktop to win 10 and I am having exactly the same issue on both.
Every so often the desktop and taskbar will refresh. It doesn't seem to be associated with having anything open, it happens randomly anytime whatever I'm doing. If I'm playing a game it will take me out of the game to the desktop too, it won't close the game though.
I found some information about it possible being AutoCAD 2014 software which I had, but now have uninstalled to try and eliminate the issue but it still persists.
Wake History Count - 1 Wake History  Wake Source Count - 1 Wake Source  Type: Wake Timer Owner: [SERVICE] DeviceHarddiskVolume2WindowsSystem32svchost.exe (SystemEventsBroker) Owner Supplied Reason: Windows will execute 'NT TASKMicrosoftWindowsUpdateOrchestratorReboot' scheduled task that requested waking the computer.
So as the title says, every now and then Windows 10 randomly decides to wake itself up from sleep. It doesn't happen at any consistent time, some days it stays asleep until I actually turn the PC back on. Using powercfg /lastwake just gives me a wake history count and doesn't provide any information.
I can't figure out why this is happening. I've tried googling it and have found similar complaints but no real solution. It's not hardware that is waking it up and I have already disabled the "allow wake" setting for my network adapters in device manager.
i don't want my mouse or touch-pad to wake my laptop from sleep when it gets triggered, I have been to 'mouse settings' & unchecked the part about waking up PC' & i hit apply & OK but no good. Now the touch-pad wont wake it up but my bluetooth mouse still does it. I'm at a lost as to what other settings i missed or if its a bug somewhere.
Upgraded to Windows 10 and now the computer wakes itself from the sleep. I have already disabled network adapter, mouse and keyboard from waking the pc. I have also disabled scheduled tasks from being able to wake the computer.
My system: Win 10 64 bit Retail, MSI B150M Mortar, Intel i5-6500, Samsung 512GB SSD, Corsair 2 x 4 GB Memory, etc.
Although my keyboard and mouse are allowed to wake the PC from sleep (in Device Manager), they don't wake the PC. Interestingly, pressing the "Power Button" on my Fractal R5 case does wake it up from sleep.
I have my laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. That works. But after the computer is sleeping and the optical mouse has shutdown (lamp off), if I simply unplug the power brick it will wake up again, the sleep light goes off and the mouse lamp comes back on and it starts running (lid closed).
Ever since I put the Windows 10 Preview on my PC, it wakes up by itself in the evening about once every other day. Seems most times there is an update to download, but not everytime. And the system is waking up from a full shutdown, not sleep mode. I have several PC's on my network and this one is the only one doing this.
I installed Windows 10 right after it came out and have had very few problems but in just the last few days it stopped waking from sleep. The power light used to flash and it would wake from a mouse or keyboard button press but no longer. The system power will come on from a press of the power button but the screen remains blank. If I remove power from the system and then repower it and turn it on it will start the BIOS and re-boot to the state that it was in when I put it into sleep mode. Clearly the hibernate process is working but something is haywire with the wake process. How to troubleshoot?
So I just installed a security program, and my windows 10 pc oddly goes to sleep and wakes back up instantly, twice. It seems like it stopped, but I would like to know if this should sound an alarm for any malicious activity.
I am on 10565 Pro version though this occured in last build too. Whenever I come back to my pc in the morning after putting it in hibernate mode for the night my airplane mode is always on. I notice it first by my bluetooth mouse being disconnected and then wifi connectivity.
The one fix I tried is unchecking the allow to shut off option to save power under device manager properties for my wifi adapter.
