  1. Use task scheduler for hibernation


    Windows 10 64 Pro ver. 2004 (os build 19041.1165) Most time window will not hibernate after the designated time has past and keeps on running. So I decided to use task scheduler to tell my computer to go to sleep. It works with one exception, it doesn't wait the 30 minutes that I requested. I hibernat after just a few minutes. It does wake up when I wiggle the mouse etc. but will go to sleep when I stop to write something down. Here are screen shots of the task scheduler settings:

  2. Win 10 Task Scheduler will not awake from hibernation properly

    Your scheduled task looks fine.

    I have a fundamental problem with your thread. You keep talking about "Hibernation" and the name of your schedduled task also includes this word. Now Windows 10 has two energy saving modes:

    • Sleep Mode. In this mode most activities are shut off but the CPU keeps ticking over. It will respond to the keyboard, the mouse and to scheduled events.
    • Hibernation. In this mode the current state is saved to disk, then the computer is shut down. In this mode the PC consumes no power. You can disconnect the power cord or remove the battery (in case of a laptop). When resuming, the current state is read
      back into RAM and Windows resumes where it left off.
    In your scheduled task you instruct Windows to "wake the computer to run this task". This means that the PC MUST BE IN SLEEP MODE. If it was hibernating then it could not be woken because the CPU is shut down!

    There are only two things that can wake a hibernating PC. Neither is dependent on the CPU:

    • The power switch
    • The BIOS (if it features such a function)
    Perhaps you would like to review your problem in the light of the above observations.

  4. Use task scheduler for hibernation

    Information on task Scheduling

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    Please follow the suggestions below:

    By default, if it's time for your regularly scheduled backup and your computer is off, sleeping, or hibernating, Windows Backup skips the backup and waits for your next scheduled backup. However, if you want to automatically wake the computer
    to perform backup, you can use the task scheduler.

    To schedule a task to wake the computer before the scheduled backup time follow these steps:

    1. Click on Start button and type “Task Scheduler” in the start search box and press enter.

    2. Select the “Task Scheduler” from the menu and click on “Actions” and then select “Create task”.

    3. Click “Conditions” tab and make sure that “Wake the computer to run this task” is checked.

    Please get back to us with updated status, we will be happy to assist you.
