my pc having insomnia


Active member
so whenever I put the pc to sleep, after some minutes -don't know random or at exact time- it will wake up by itself :hmm: :(

this has happened ever since a clean install windows 7... there were a time or two when it stayed sleep until I woke it up but mostly it woke up by itself.

tried the cmd command powercfg lastwake, nothing came up; so how do I fix this? :confused:
Recent versions of windows (Vista and newer I think) can wake from sleep to run scheduled tasks like disk drefrag or windows update.

To stop that from happening disable the "Allow wake timers" option in the advanced power config
