    Task "Universal Orchestrator Start" keeps waking up my computer


    Hello, I just want to prevent Update Orchestrator from waking up my computer. I've already gone into Task Manager with pstools and the following command


    psexec.exe -i -s% windir% \ system32 \ mmc.exe / s taskschd.msc


    In the "Universal Orchestrator Start" task, I have already cleared the "Wake the computer to run this task" checkbox on the "Condition" tab many times, but the computer continues to check this box.


    I already checked many forums to get here, but I could not find any answer on how to stop the system checking this box again.


    How can I get the system to not check the box again?

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards,


    Adam

    :)

  2. 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)?

  3. Update Orchestrator keeps waking pc

    So in the middle of the night my pc decided that it was time to wake up and install some updates. My pc is half a meter from my head and filled with loud fans and RGB, so of course I woke up immediately... How can I stop Windows Updates from waking up my
    pc? I regularly (but not always) put my pc in hibernate, instead of shutting it down. I've unchecked every option to 'wake the computer to run this task' in the menu UpdateOrchestrator, but that still doesn't help... And if I check event logger, I read that NT
    TASK\Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\Universal Orchestrator Start has started the pc.

    Is there an option somewhere to keep this from happening?
