    How do I set wake timers


    I have followed this process and Enabled the "Allow wake timers" in the Advanced Settings/Sleep" section, but I cannot see how to set an Awake Timer. I am wanting to set Sleep after one hour but to wake it up at midnight (say) in order for online backups, updates, etc to connect and this seems to be the only way to do it. So how do I set wake timers?

    :)

    Windows wakes up with Wake Timers set to off

    Dear Geethu! Really thanks for such fast reply. But!

    In other words - you don't know how to get rid of wake events! Did you underastand my question? How exactly your solution is helping in getting rid of wake events?

    I do not want to troubleshoot power as I said before, I want Windows not to wake up no matter what is set in Allow Wake Timers setting. I want to turn off Wake Timers for real, once and for all, and forget about them for the rest of my life.

    And the question (after applying your solution) still remains: why PC is waking up if Wake Timers are disabled?

    Of course your solution is not working.

    How to stop wake timers

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I will be glad to assist you with the issue you are experiencing with the computer. I understand the difficulty when things won’t work the way they should.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps you regarding the issue to resolve.

    To see a list of wake timers set on your computer, you can run the following command.

    Note: this command must be run as Administrator.

    • Press Windows + X keys and select Command prompt (Admin)
    • Type powercfg -waketimers and hit enter.

    If a specific program is causing your computer to wake, you can uninstall it or adjust the scheduled task’s settings in the Windows task scheduler.

    However, if you don’t want any programs waking your computer up automatically, you can disable wake timers entirely.

    To do so,

    • Press Start and Type Power Options and select it.
    • Click the Change plan settings link in the Power Options window.

    How do I set wake timers

    Windows wakes up with Wake Timers set to off

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you have an issue with wake timers in Windows 10. I appreciate your efforts,
    I will surely help you to fix this issue.

    This issue could have occurred due to incorrect power settings.

    I would suggest you to restore the power plans to default and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Reset and restore the power plans to default:

    • Right-click on Start button
      and click on Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the command prompt, type powercfg –restoredefaultschemes
      and hit Enter.
    • Exit command prompt.
    Note: This would reset the power plan settings to default. Any customized power plans are would be removed.

    Step 2:

    Once the power plan is reset to default, you may create a
    new power plan and customize the same according to your needs.

    Refer to the link:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/power-plans-faq

    Note: Applies to Windows 10.
