    Find "Wake up from sleep" Scheduled Tasks


    Other than going through each and every task in the task scheduler, is there a way to see those that are allowed to wake the machine while it is sleeping? My PC woke up this morning at 3:30 am. It then went back to sleep about ten minutes later. I've checked all of the normal things (no auto-maintenance, etc.) so I' suspecting it is a task that woke the PC up.

    :)

    Windows 10 computer wakes up automatically from sleep mode.

    I painstakingly went through the list in "taskschd.msc" and disabled every scheduled tasks I could find. While I was doing that, I discovered that most of the tasks were scheduled to run after midnight. Is Microsoft thinking that there is no computer in
    a bedroom where people try to sleep after putting computers to sleep. Does anyone like to be waken up by computer noises in the middle of the night (not to mention that it is a creepy thing to experience). I am typing this after my PC woke up at 1:16am. In
    the meantime, my iMac sleeps quietly as always. Microsoft has to stop the annoying behavior of waking up computers just because Microsoft has work to do. I know it is not just Microsoft scheduling these annoying midnight work. Microsoft needs to stop them
    too.
     
  3. Can wake timers be cancelled from the command prompt or a script?

    I have been trying until I bleed to stop Windows 10 waking from sleep, but it seems there is absolutely no way of stopping it setting wake timers to perform updates. So I am reduced to running "powercfg -waketimers" every time I put the machine to sleep
    and then disabling any wake timers in the task scheduler control panel, which takes an annoying amount of time. Is there instead a way of cancelling wake timers from the command line, and would it be possible to automate the cancelling of wake timers with
    a script?

    Find "Wake up from sleep" Scheduled Tasks

    3:30am is the normal time W10 schedules to restart your PC after an update. Might be worth checking the Update page in Settings and see if your update history shows if anything happened or if a scheduled restart is set.

    Hi, to try to address your general query, there seems no easy way, as you may have found.
    Whilst you can create a big list like this from a command prompt:

    schtasks /query /v /fo CSV > <path>tasks.csv
    (replace <path> for somewhere convenient else the file is written to where you were when you launched the command)


    ...and get a tasks.csv file which you can open in Excel, this doesn't seem to include the wake condition.

    People have done that with a complex powershell script.
