    Sleep/Wake via Task Manager

    I have a bat file(s) set up for Sleep and Wake via the Task Manager in W7 and W8 and now W10. I have Task Manger execute the Sleep bat file ever night at 10PM. I have tried "runddl32.exe powrprof.dll,suspendstate", "runddl32.exe powrprof.dll,suspendstate 0,1,0", "C:Windows\System32\runddl32.exe powrprof.dll,suspendstate", etc. and they all put the system to sleep. I also tried the psshutdown.exe method. I did have to turn off Hibernation so that the system would sleep instead of Hibernate - power light would blink on the ASRock MB.

    However, I can't seem to find the right combination of settings to Wake the system via the Task Manager if it were put to sleep via one of the above bat files. The system will Wake if I move the mouse AND the system will Wake automatically via the Task Manager if I put the system to sleep manually via the Power/Sleep button.

    Any ideas on what magic I need to exercise to get W10 Task Manager to behave like it did in W7 or W8 would be appreciated!

    Sleep Issues - Windows 10

    Asus NJ550V notebook

    upgraded from windows 8 to 10

    here we go

    when trying to sleep the computer wakes up instantly, whether i use the power button, sleep button or close the lid.

    This did not happen to me in windows 8. Its almost as if it restarts as the load time from a wake feels too long, could be wrong though.

    Things i have tried:

    checked and changed settings in power options

    checked power management settings in device manager, adapter and media settings and so on

    checked for driver updates

    checked for latest bios

    checked task scheduler and no tasks are set to wake the computer

    ran powercfg commands in cmd. no wake timers set and last wake displays nothing

    checked for malware

    checked registry

    enabled/disabled fast boot - bios

    enabled/disabled wake on lid open - bios


    cheers in advanced

    laptop is touch screen but had to disable at it has a crack


    my laptop is actually just restarting and not going to sleep at all
