    Sounds play when PC goes to sleep. Do I have ghosts??


    This bothersome issue started only recently (*maybe* since the last Win10 update). Initially, I thought it happened only when my computer went to sleep ... then I checked my settings and I have it set to *never* go to sleep.

    These magical Windows wav sounds start playing only after I've been away from my computer for awhile -- after my monitor is no longer displaying my screensaver and is blank/black. (It's not a huge problem if I remember to turn my speakers off before I go to bed ... but when I forget the playing of the sounds jars me out of bed.)

    My musical ear is not able to identify exactly which files are playing and when. But the frequency with which they play is constant: 30 seconds, 30 seconds, 60 seconds. Then repeat the sounds at 30/30/60 second intervals.


    Does this may sense? I've Googled the heck out of my question and find zero answers. Guessing it's either a Win glitch, I'm crazy, or my computer has a ghost. Help appreciated.

    :)

    Hi Hamza,

    Conflicts with the power settings is one of the possible reasons why your computer goes to sleep automatically. For us to assist you better, kindly answer the following questions:

    Meanwhile, you can try to run the Power troubleshooter. Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with your system's power settings. You can follow the steps below:
