  3. what process creates the task "NT TASK\Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\Universal Orchestrator Start"?

    hello,

    in my home i have a computer that i always put in hibernate mode instead of turning it off.

    from time to time my computer wakes up automatically at around 23:00 for few minutes and turnd off again.

    (ans sometimes it doesn't turn off - then the computer still runs in the morning, when i get up)

    and every time the computer is doing that, i wake up as well, because the initial power-on fan-test is very very noisy.

    i was looking powercfg what the cause was of the last wake and it was always

    "NT TASK\Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\Universal Orchestrator Start".

    but when i take a look to "NT TASK\Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\" in the task schedule, there is no

    "Universal Orchestrator Start" anymore, that i could muten/prevent from turning on the computer next time.

    it seems the taks deletes itself as soon it was rebooting the computer.

    what process is creating "NT TASK\Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\Universal Orchestrator Start"?

    for what is it good for?

    is there a way to turn off creating that task?

    i observed that issue more often in the last few days/week - was something changed in the last update (1909 / 2019-12)?

  4. TASK\Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator wakes computer

    Microsoft hijacking my computer with UpdateOrchestrator

    This is completely unacceptable. Microsoft should compensate for wasted electricity. Not only the computer is running but the screens are forced to stay on too (which normally turn off after 30 minutes of inactivity). I have wasted 24+ hours on this nonsense.
    Some of the questions online about the SAME problem with the SAME solutions date back to 2015. I regret paying for this product.

    Poweshell reveals the culprits:

    Get-ScheduledTask | where {$_.settings.waketorun}

    UpdateOrchestrator\ Backup Scan

    and

    UpdateOrchestrator\ Universal Orchestrator Start

    fyi Command Prompt does not reveal any information through "powercfg /lastwake":

    Wake History Count - 1

    Wake History [0]

    Wake Source Count - 0

    Things done:

    Power options all set to disable wake timers (persistent)

    Network card disabled from waking up the computer (never was anyway). Other hardware not indicated either (never was).

    Never used teamviewer. Never had mediacenter.

    Only Powershell shows the offending tasks (Get-ScheduledTask | where {$_.settings.waketorun})

    Need PSTools to launch Task Scheduler or I cannot do anything.

    Have tried: deleting

    disabling "wake computer to run this task"

    disable altogether

    Taken ownership of the task

    All of these get reset latest next day.

    Set up a task to disable them every hour: Run PowerShell.exe with the arguments -Command "C:\Windows\Manual Override\disable_wakejobs.ps1"

    The content of "disable_wakejobs.ps1": Get-ScheduledTask | ? {$_.Settings.WakeToRun -eq $true -and $_.State -ne "Disabled"} | % {$_.Settings.WakeToRun = $false; Set-ScheduledTask $_}

    Also ran in powershell admin: "Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned" first

    This worked for like 2 days and never again. The task has System ownership and runs with highest privileges.

    Changed Group Policy: Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Update

    Enabling Windows Update Power Management to automatically wake up the system to install scheduled updates

    to Disabled

    Modified the Registry

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator

    Deleting contents, but just gets reset in a day or two.

    DO NOT waste my time with arrogant "are your drivers up to date" or safe or recovery mode or whatever you call it nowadays.

    5 year old problem ruining computers and wasting energy. I've had malware less damaging than this operating system.
