    My computer keeps randomly going to sleep and will not wake up.


    This happens even when I set the power option to 'never'.I have uninstalled/installed drivers. Taken out my graphics card and memory chips and cleaned all the contacts. I have changed the DVI.Removed unnecessary entries in Device Manager.I did manage to run a graphics card test and it was OK.The power supply I am using is a year old and is more than enough to run my system.After cleaning my graphics card etc. The computer ran for six hours without fault. Then the next day, random sleep again.I am now preparing to do a fresh install of Windows, but I would rather not as I have lots of programs

    :)

    Computer Randomly Turns on From Sleep

    I only saw this thread now, otherwise I would have suggested this sooner.
    I had that same problem you are having, my computer was waking-up from S3 and the culprit was my X7 mouse.
    powercfg -lastwake also listed the HID keyboard device which was an extension of the mouse.
    Besides going in device manager and setting everything to not being able to wake-up the computer from S3, I also did this to the power profiles:

    Worked for me.

  3. 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.

    Logon screen keeps on appearing after waking up the computer from sleep - Windows 10

    Hi,

    This is actually the first thing we tried. The computer comes up with a message saying:

    "Authentication is required when this PC wakes from sleep. To change this go to setttings and search for Power and Sleep."

    The dropdown box underneath is greyed out, and inactive.

    Going to Power and Sleep leads to your first suggestion, which is a dead end.

    Regards, Stewart
