    Can't stop machine waking itself from hibernation


    My desktop machine keeps waking itself up from hibernation, usually during the night, despite my having taken all reasonable steps to stop it. I have:
    • disabled waking on network, mouse and RTC in BIOS setup
    • disabled wake on mouse and network in device manager (and checked with powercfg -devicequery wake_armed)
    • disabled "allow wake timers" for all power plans
    It doesn't however wake itself up from S5 (shutdown). I also tried leaving it in S3 sleep for over 24 hours and it didn't wake up, although that's not long enough to be certain that it never would.

    Unfortunately my records in Event Viewer only go back a bit over a week to my upgrade to Windows 10, but I did notice a pattern in the first few days of waking at around 00:17 or 00:18 in the morning. Event Viewer suggested that this was due to mcupdate_scheduler, which was scheduled to run at 00:19, so I changed the trigger (following some instructions from Microsoft), but the next night the machine woke earlier, at 23:45. Unfortunately event viewer had no idea what caused that particular event. And today I have just run powercfg -waketimer and apparently there is a task \blah\blah\updateorchestrator\reboot which requires waking the machine just after 02:00 tomorrow morning. Clearly trying to change each individual trigger is a hopeless game of whack-a-mole which will sooner or later result in my wrecking something. How on earth can I stop my machine waking up?

    Transition from sleep to hibernate fails

    I have a problem with my laptop not hibernating from sleep following the creators edition update.

    Before the update I had my machine set to sleep after 20 minutes and hibernate after 30 minutes

    For my usage this worked perfectly, if I didn't wake the machine up from sleep then

    I would probably not be back for some time so would hibernate to save power.

    Following the creators update my laptop would sleep fine but when it wakes to hibernate it fails and

    goes back to sleep. This repeats for ever until I wake the machine.

    If I manually hibernate the laptop it works fine.

    I have tracked the problem down to a wake timer being set for a backup to a server running Windows Home Server 2011.

    This wake timer prevents hibernating from sleep even if the wake timer is set for many hours in the future.

    If I disable the task that sets this wake timer the sleep then hibernate operation works as it used to but

    of course the backup never runs.

    If I change the power option for wake timers to important events only the laptop works as it used to but it does not wake up

    to carry out the backup.

    I have carried out a number of tests and have discovered that any wake timer that is timed within 24 hours of the

    attempt to go from sleep to hibernate will cause the transition to fail.

    Could someone please test this as I can't believe this is how Microsoft designed it!!

    Toshiba laptop won't stay in sleep mode after downloading Windows 10

    As well as any "Wake On" settings in various Windows Settings you may also have similar setting in the Bios of the machine.

    How to prevent Windows 10 waking from sleep when traveling in bag?

    If your machine has a Bios then enter it and check for settings there. It also might be a good idea to see if any Bios Update is available for your model from your OEM Toshiba.

    Personally I would not bother with Hibernation, I prefer to Shutdown correctly. Your machine will need to restart occasionally to install all the Windows Updates thrown at it. Nowadays machines start so fast that there is not a lot to be gained from using
    Hibernation. Hibernating overnight might even be a slight risk?

    Hibernation, good or bad?
