    New Windows Update Sleep Mode- Computer Randomly Turning On


    I accidently installed the new Windows update on 8/11. When I put my computer to sleep, the screen goes black, and about 30 seconds later it comes back to life. This is especially frustrating because my huge monitor turning on while I am trying to sleep mere feet away from my desk causes my entire room to light up.

    Does anyone know how I can get sleep mode to work like normal again? I don't like to turn my computer off every night.

    Thanks,

    Jo

    :)

    Computer Randomly Turns on From Sleep

    been dealing with this one myself actually, since i went 8.1

    in a CMD prompt you can use
    powercfg -lastwake

    to find out the cause. for me it was windows 'scheduled maintenance' which can be disabled in the windows "action center"

    default time is 2am.

    Computer Randomly Turns on From Sleep

    Hey guys, I have been trying to fix this on my own for over a week can't get it to stop. I think it's a software problem?

    My problem: Computer will randomly turn on when in sleep mode it usually happens around 1-6am, but has happened during the day time. My computer is in the bed room so I can here it turn on.

    Investigating: I have hurried and checked my computer right once it turned itself on and didn't see anything running in the background, no updates, no scanning etc...

    Settings Changes: I have turned off auto updates of many things or switched them to only happen on Saturdays 6-10PM(didn't fix it)
    I have gone through every single even scheduler(46) made sure none of them can wake computer from sleep mode.(didn't fix it)
    I have scanned for virus ETC. Kaspersky/ Malwarebytes Pro(didn't fix it)
    Checked MB bios and made sure all wake up settings are OFF(didn't fix it)

    Conclusion: This is why I need your help as you can see I have tried many things but still cant fix it. THE ONE thing I can't stop is the stupid Skydrive I have even tried creating registry file to stop it. The only other thing I can think of is a electrical problem in the wall sending it a slight jolt or something? It is plugged in to a surge protector a Monster Flatscreen HTS 400, it also cleans the power... It says its grounded and protection is on...

    Thanks for any help/suggestions! As you can tell I feel like I have tried everything I know... Also I just woke up and didn't get much sleep so if something didn't make sense that's why...

    Computer Randomly Turns on From Sleep

    I'll keep that in mind blobster21, for now I disable booting from keyboard and mouse to see if this fixes my problem... My computer sites on my desk and is very easy to just press the power button to turn on from sleep mode.
