  1. PC keeps waking op on its own!


    Hi, for those also having this issue, to solve this problem:


    - Run a command prompt as administrator.

    - Enter what is in between the quotes:


    "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed"


    Now you see a list of devices able to wake your PC. One example "Logitech HID-Compliant Keyboard"


    -If you don't want that device to wake your PC, enter:

    "powercfg -devicedisablewake "Logitech HID-Compliant Keyboard""

    Because we have pets, they can run across my keyboard !


    I just disabled everything one by one on the list!


    I'm sure you can search in all the setting menu's and there may be other solutions.

    I found this to be the quickest.


    The only thing that can wake my PC is pressing the powerbutton.


    Hope you all benefit from this.

    And please, don't go hating on Microsoft, nothing or nobody is perfect, even if they tell you so!

    Have a nice day all.

    :)

    Logitech M510 Mouse Keeps Waking Up Computer

    Hi,

    It's always good to preserve your device's power by putting it on sleep mode. If your mouse is waking up the device, we suggest following the steps below as another workaround:

    • Press Windows Key + X and select Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    • Once Command Prompt window opens, enter the following command: powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
    • You should be able to see the list of all devices that are allowed to wake up your computer. Enter
      powercfg -devicedisablewake “device name” into Command Prompt to stop a device from waking up your PC. Remember to
      replace “device name” with a name of the actual device. It’s also important to keep the quotation marks, so do not delete them.
    • You can also use powercfg -deviceenablewake “device name” command to enable certain device to wake up your PC, but it is optional. You can find the name of the specific device by using the Device Manager.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.

    App not waking pc from sleep

    Thank you for getting back to us, Alexander. We can try to configure WinTv's task scheduler, kindly follow these steps:

    1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key.
    2. Type Task Scheduler, and press Enter.
    3. Look for the specific task where you'd like WinTv to record (It'll easy to check under Next Run Time since you know the time when WinTv will record).
    4. Highlight the task, click Condition on the middle pane.
    5. Under Power, tick the box Wake the computer to run this task.

    Check if your PC will wake to record after performing these steps, if the issue persists, kindly provide us your Windows build and version so we can look for more troubleshooting steps:

    1. On your keyboard, press Windows + R.
    2. Type winver, and press Enter.

    Keep us posted.
