    Desktop computer wakes up after a few minutes


    Not sure what is causing it. Not sure what other information you all would need apart from what I'm pasting below.

    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10240]
    (c) 2015 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
    NONE

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg /lastwake
    Wake History Count - 1
    Wake History [0]
    Wake Source Count - 0

    I am running "High Performance" in Power Options and I have disabled "Allow wake timers." I have also unchecked “Allow scheduled maintenance to wake up my computer at the scheduled time” in Action Center Maintenance.

    What is causing these wakes? Can it be a Sony blu-ray device connected to the same wireless network? That's the only thing that has recently changed that I remember.

    :)

  2. My computer wake's up a couple minutes after when fall in sleep mode

    Hi,

    We understand the issue you are facing and will assist you.

    I suggest you to follow the methods provided below and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Run the Power troubleshooter.

    • Type “Troubleshooting” in search box and press Enter.
    • Click on “View all” on the top left pane.
    • Click on Power from the list and follow the prompts for troubleshooting.

    Method 2: Check for the issue in a Clean Boot state. A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or
    an update or when you run a program in Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista. You may also troubleshoot or determine what conflict is causing the problem by performing a clean boot.

    * Place the computer in a Clean Boot and check if the issue is occurring due to any third party programs.

    Follow the link to view the steps to perform Clean Boot:

    Disclaimer:
    Start the computer in normal mode refer the section,
    "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting"
    from the link above.

    Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    My computer wake's up a couple minutes after when fall in sleep mode

    A couple minutes after putting pc to sleep it wakes up. I disabled mouse, keyboard, network card from being able to wake up the pc.

    I used powercfg -lastwake shows Type: wake timer and Owner: [Process] device\harddiskvolume1\program files\diebold\warsaw\core.exe

    Can I stop this from waking up my computer or uninstalling what ever this is?

    Thanks!!
