    Dell laptop randomly wakes up from sleep


    I've had this Dell Inspiron i5577 for quite a while, and now, it's been waking up randomly at night. This morning I woke up to my computer on, well, sort of. It was on, the fans were loud, but the screen wasn't on. My RGB external keyboard was on too, but my mouse wasn't. I'm so confused as to why my computer wakes up. I've disabled wake timers and auto maintenance before, and it solved rhe problem temporarily. Today, the issue came back to haunt me. Any help is appreciated and, I think this might be because of the windows update? At night, I don't close my laptop lid because my keyboard is there, should I close my laptop lid? Any help is appreciated, I think I'll have to disable wake on LAN in my bios if that's even a thing? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    :)
     

  2. Dell Inspiron 3543 wake from sleep issue.

    Hello All,

    Below is my laptop details

    Laptop Model: Dell inspiron 3543

    OS: Win 10 Pro 64Bit (ver 1803) Build: 17134.345

    BIOS ver: 05.06.05

    Processor: i3

    Ram : 8GB

    HDD: 1TB

    I am facing a issue related to wake from sleep, where when i put my laptop to sleep either manually or auto sleep set to 60min but when i try to wake it by opening the lid or pressing the power button there is no display ( this scenario is for short sleep
    duration).

    The 2nd scenario is overnight sleep where i manually put the laptop to sleep and morning when i try to wake the laptop the battery is drained or same as the 1st scenario no display.

    In both the cases, i have to long press the power button ( Hard restart).

    As per my observation, it might have happened after the recent Windows update KB4462919, KB4462930.

    Steps taken to rectify the issue:

    • BIOS Update - Speedstep disabled in BIOS and Fast startup from Power Option.
    • Power option reset
    • Hybrid sleep off and on
    • Hibernate off and on
    • Sleep Duration change
    • Allow this computer to wake from sleep WIFI and Ethernet Disabled
    • Disable modern/connected standby HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power --- CsEnabled set to 0
    Thanks in advance

    Regard`s

    Dell WIN10 DESKTOP (NOT LAPTOP!) does not wake from sleep


    Dell WIN10 DESKTOP (NOT LAPTOP!) does not wake from sleep.

    After frustration with sleep issues, PC was set to never sleep and hibernation was DISABLED, hybrid sleep was set to OFF.

    PC went into sleep overnight, and cannot be waked.

    After manual shutdown & holding for 45 seconds, PC goes immediately back into sleep mode on pressing start button, with light flashing but will not wake up. No opportunity to get control of the PC.

    USB wire-connected keyboard & mouse are not "on" and thus not recognized by sleeping system.

    IE, NO WAY TO GET COMMAND PROMPT or GET CONTROL OF BOOT or SYSTEM, SO CANNOT TRY THE MANY TIPS FOUND IN FORUMS FOR ENDLESS SLEEP MODE, NOR CAN I UPDATE DRIVERS - sorry for CAPs but I've seen many suggestions, all of which rely on being able to access the BIOS or Safe Start etc, so are not helpful to this case. Thanks in advance for any help!

    wake from sleep issue in windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your reply. Apologize for the delay in response.

    I suggest you to check which devices are configured to wake up the computer from sleep by following the steps below:

    • Right click on Start icon and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type the command line below:
    Powercfg /devicequery wake_armed

    3. Check if the devices (Keyboard, Mouse, Ethernet cable) are listed.

    If the system is not going to sleep and going to Hybernate, the only option to wake up is to press the Power button.

    Hope the information is helpful.
