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..
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?
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.

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.
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.
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?
I have had windows 10 since the Insider program started but I never needed to use sleep until now. But whenever I put my computer to sleep it wakes up 30 seconds later. I have made sure that my network card, keyboard,mouse and controllers aren't allowed wake the computer. How can I stop my Computer waking up?
Since I've upgraded to 10 from 8.1, when I try to wake my computer from sleep it apparently wakes, then shuts off, then turns on, then shuts off again, and then finally turns on. This happens over the course of about 15 seconds. When it finally turns on and stays on, it says that it's finishing installing updates, then restarts one more time before staying booted. This happens every time.

So upgraded from 8.1 Pro. I never had any problems with 8.1 other than the occasional crash here and there, but nothing exceptional. Now every time that I try to wake the computer from sleep I get a stop message that states that it tried to write to read only memory.
I have run memtest86 overnight with 7 iterations and it passed them with no errors. I ran a burn test on my CPU to see if it was overheating, with it never going above 63 degrees Celsius even on the most extreme test.
The crashes are not random. They only happen when I try to wake the computer from sleep. However, it looks like what is causing them is random.
I have never overclocked my computer and I have never touched the frequencies with the memory.
System: Intel NUC 54250WYKH Monitor: Acer T232HL (1920x1080) OS: Windows 10 Pro (clean install)
When my NUC wakes from sleep mode, existing windows are sized and positioned as if the display resolution had changed to a much lower value (e.g. 1024x768) during sleep but was restored to 1920x1080 after waking. The windows are smaller and positioned in the upper-left corner of the display. This happens with any program I have running when the system goes to sleep (e.g. File Explorer, Visual Studio 2015, etc.).
This problem didn't happen with Win8 on the same computer.
