Since I upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7 my pc every night wakes its self from sleep mode. I did the command prompt and it said a wake timer was waking my pc, I have been unable to find a wake timer. How to fix this?
So, just like the title says, my PC keeps waking after I put it to sleep mode. It probably takes around 10-15 minutes of being in sleep before it wakes up. The reason I'm posting this question is because I have looked up solutions for this and they don't appear to be working.
I've checked my device manager; only my keyboard and mouse are enabled to wake my PC. I ran, powercfg -devicequery wake_armed, in my command prompt to make sure that only my keyboard and mouse are the only devices.
I disabled wake timers in the power options and ran, powercfg -waketimers, to see if there's waketimers. There aren't any.
I also ran, powercfg -lastwake, after my computer woke up automatically. I didn't take a picture of it but it said ther was a wake history count of 1 but it didn't state what was the source of it waking. I thought that was strange so I put it to sleep then woke it up with my mouse. Checked again with that command prompt and this time it specified the source which was my mouse obviously.
When I put my laptop on sleep mode and wake it up a few hours later, it starts up and goes to my desktop and lets me use the computer for like 2-5 minutes and then the windows lock screen shows up and I have to put in the password. During this time, the start button is sometimes unresponsive and if I click shutdown or restart, it says "other people are still logged on, would you like to shutdown/restart anyways." This has been bothering me for a while now and it's very annoying. Booting up or restarting normally works fine. Also, if I put it on sleep and wake it up a few mins later, the lock screen shows up instantly and causes no problems.
I have recently completed a new home build with the following specs:
Processor: i7-6700k Motherboard: Gigabyte GA Z170X Gaming GT Memory: Corsair Vengence LPX DDR4, 2666 GPU: Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury SSD: Intel 750 Series, 1.2 TB PSU: Corsair RM Series 750 Watt Case: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 OS: Windows 10 Home
The build went fairly well and the computer seems rather stable (and very, very quiet). But the main problem I am having is that after the computer wakes up from sleep mode, it crashes a few seconds later and re-boots. The event log will be riddled with entries upon reboot, but one critical event in particular catches my attention:
Event ID: 41, Kernel-Power
There are also a number of Errors that show up; not sure if they are normal or not but I suspect errors should not typically occur. I've updated all of my device drives but that didn't really seem to solve the issue. I also tried changing the power settings and un-selecting "Fast Startup" as per a recommendation I read on a different forum but that had no effect. To prevent the system crash, I've simply been shutting down my computer after I am done using it which isn't a bad thing, but I'd like to have the option of using sleep mode.
Also, for what it's worth, I remember having a bitch of a time with sleep mode with RAID 0 on my old computer, so perhaps Windows does not yet adequately support "sleep mode" with PCI-E controllers.
I have an Asus Vivobook. In windows 8 I used sleep mode all the time. after the upgrade to windows 10 whenever the computer enters sleep mode either by closing the lid, automated or manual, when I wake it it restarts. I entered the BIOS and the AHPC mode was enabled, and was the only option. I looked through the computer power options, but I can't find anything.
After upgrading to W10 my pc keeps waking up from sleep mode. I've disables the reboot and scan in to wake the pc in task scheduler, I removed the wake on lan, mouse and keyboard from waking it in device manager, and I've disabled what I can in power management. It still wakes up a few minutes after going into sleep mode..
i am having a strange issue with my windows 10 pro version, It was working fine until the 3rd cumulative update. Now my lap never goes to sleep. When i sleep the laptop it goes to sleep and then automatically wake after 30 to 40 sec, and sometimes even 4 to 5 minutes. I have troubleshooted the power option, removed all the scheduled events but nothing works. On searching the command prompt with powercfg lastwake command it shows The POWER BUTTON.
I have windows 10 pro 64 bit. I am running a 120gb SSD for my OS and a 1.5TB HDD for media and games. Whenever I put the computer in standby or sleep mode the HDD is not recognized when the computer wakes up. Upon restart the HDD is recognized and everything is groovy.
Recently I have been finding my PC powered up when it should be sleeping. Using powercfg -lastwake does not show a cause but looking at system events I can that there are a series of events each day starting at 08:59:31. One of these is a Power - Troubleshooter event which says that the system has returned from a low power state but Wake Source is unknown. This and the other messages are ones that normally appear if I wake up the PC manually. There are subsequent events from Windows Update so I thought that might be the cause but it does not run immediately and I now believe that it is running because the PC has woken up and is not causing it to wake.
I have checked in Power Options Advanced Settings/Sleep and Allow wake timers is set to disabled.i have checked that on my network adaptor, 'Allow this device to wake the computer' is not checked.I have checked Control Panel/Security and Maintenance/Automatic Maintenance and Allow scheduled maintenance to wake my computer at the scheduled time is unchecked.
I had also checked in Task Scheduler and under WindowsUpdate there are 4 tasks but under Conditions, none are set to 'Wake the computer to run this task'.Checking back through the event logs it seems that this problem first happened on 27th Sep and always happens at 08:59:31. I have looked at the event log for the previous day and can see some events relating to the installation or update of a device driver although I haven't made changes to the hardware for a long time. It is followed by an event relating to Disk 3 which I don't normally have so I assume these were as a result of plugging in a USB device. There are also events relating to a windows update of VCLibs 12. how I can track down the culprit?
With my new build computer, I am having serious problems with the sleep function. This was an upgrade from 8.1.
After attempting to wake up from sleep with an input, either a) the screen remains black, or b) the desktop is visible but soon after, everything freezes and no input is possible at all requiring a manual reset. The computer turns on and wakes up (fan and light).
Right now I've turned sleep off, but I'd like to have it working properly.
I have downloaded all the latest drivers from Asus and Nvidia, including chipset, LAN, Video, latest Bios, etc.
Xeon 1650 v3 Asus X99 WS-E motherboard 32GB ECC RAM Nvidia GTX 950 Intel 750 SSD M.2 Nvme 450gb Samsung 850 Pro 1 TB Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard Asus 4k HDMI 2.0 monitor
ASUS UX303LN user. Before 3 days, my laptop started refusing to wake up from sleep properly, instead it reboots from a clean state, It is as if I am pressing an invisible reset button that starts the computer from scratch.
The first time this occured, I managed to catch a glimpse of a BSOD with a sad face, followed by a restart (unfortunately I have not managed to note down the message). After that every time I do the same there is no BSOD, the laptop just shows the BIOS posting and then it loads Windows. Event Viewer shows the same Error 41 after every reboot. Note that before this problem started to occur, my laptop barely had to start from scratch (every time I was done with working I was just closing the lid, returning in a functioning environment) for a good 2 years. I had to reboot maybe once/twice a month for the necessary updates.
Some more info:
-After crashing, the computer does NOT generate a memory dump, no matter what. I know how to setup a memory dump, however for the last 50 crashes it does not. I have tried selecting minidump instead of automatic dump without a result (the last dump was 3 weeks back for another reason). Disabling automatic restart after crash does not work either. -The problem started 2 days after receiving the notorious KB3140743 update (that came together with KB3139907). Uninstalling the first did not work, the second cannot be uninstalled. -Trying to alleviate the problem, I thought of changing to hibernate instead of sleep when I close the lid/ the system goes idle. For that I had to reenable hibernation (powercfg /h on) which I had disabled because I have not used it. It worked ONCE, just the first time, every other time the result is the same as with sleeping (reboot and error 41). Enabling/disabling Hybrid Sleep did not work either) -Windows memory diagnostics shows no errors, SMART also shows no errors for the SSD
What I have tried (and failed) so far:
-Reverting KB3140743 -Updating/reverting display drivers for the 2 GPUs (intel 4400/geforce 840m) -Updating/reverting/completely disabling intel 7260 wifi/bluetooth drivers (which are known to be problematic) -Changing network card's "keep device awake" options -Updating intel DPTF drivers (after seeing that they post some not critical errors in the event viewer) -Disabling Throttlestop (a tool to manage the CPU's behaviour) -Changing power schemes -Tinkering with different SSD options (indexing/virtual memory etc)
This is a PC purchased with windows 10, it wasn't an upgrade. Only thing I did was clone the operating system onto a SSD hard drive, and keep the original drive for storage.
Maybe every 3rd bootup, or any time I wake from sleep, the computer is unresponsive on many programs and system functions. It isn't frozen, edge browser always works, office works, other programs work. It isn't trying hard or chugging away either, opening task manager shows little or no CPU, hard drive, RAM, network activity.
This is what doesn't work:
chrome browser - click to open, nothing happens. maybe 20 minutes later if I don't restart, it will open.
windows store - won't open.
windows store games - won't open.
windows explorer - won't open to browse files, click and nothing. same as chrome, maybe 20 minutes later it will open.
windows update - won't connect.
Some times when I boot up, everything works perfectly, no issues. But like I said, maybe every 3rd bootup, or after waking from sleep it doesn't function correctly.
Not sure what info I need to include about the PC, but it is all new components.
a few days ago I updated my 64 bit windows 7 ultimate to windows 10 pro, and ever since then whenever I put the PC to sleep and try to wake it the PC tries to start but the screen remains black and after a while a BSOD will appear (now with a sad face on it... amusing...) stating driver_power_state_failure, it happens consistently and only under those circumstances (at least for now) I tried running the driver verifier (as explained on other posts BSOD on sleep, DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE - Windows 10 Forums) and followed the tenforums tutorial, but nothing in particular happened
I use the sleep function a lot and I cant have it like this.
Recently, whenever I wake my laptop up from sleep (from closing the lid and then opening it again), sometimes I get a BSOD.
I think it started when I updated the Intel graphics driver, so I've booted into safe mode, uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, and I still get an issue.
I've attached the debug files, there was a previous BSOD a few months ago that I was getting due to a Nvidia driver issue, but I downgraded to an earlier version and it's stopped it, so I don't think the issue is there.
Password is asked only when the PC starts,but not when it is waking from sleep.Ask password when PC wake from sleep checkbox is selected.But it is not Asking when waking from sleep,it directly goes to desktop.
Is there a way to make it ask the password everytime the PC wakes from sleep?
