    Wake from sleep - unwanted ethernet, versus mouse?


    About a week ago I started noticing that my PC, which normally goes to sleep at the three-hour mark of inactivity, would be awake when I returned from work, or to a lesser extent, in the morning.

    Using the event viewer, I found that the source of these unwanted wakes - honestly, virtually all my wakes including the "wanted" ones - was Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V.

    But I use my mouse - double-click - to wake my computer. Which, as far as I know - confirmed by the wake times earlier than last week - was how/when the computer was waking.

    So I turned off that Ethernet connection's ability to wake the computer (using Device Manager). Put PC to sleep manually from the start menu. Double-clicked the mouse, which woke the PC. And the wake source was USB Input Device (my USB mouse).

    I'm comfortable I've disabled the unwanted wakes, and relieved that the mouse can still wake the computer.

    But I'm also wondering:
    1. Why did the ethernet connection suddenly start waking the computer when I was away?
    2. Why did my mouse wakes show up as ethernet wakes before I disabled the ethernet connection from waking?

    :)

  2. wake from sleep issue in windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your reply. Apologize for the delay in response.

    I suggest you to check which devices are configured to wake up the computer from sleep by following the steps below:

    • Right click on Start icon and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type the command line below:
    Powercfg /devicequery wake_armed

    3. Check if the devices (Keyboard, Mouse, Ethernet cable) are listed.

    If the system is not going to sleep and going to Hybernate, the only option to wake up is to press the Power button.

    Hope the information is helpful.

  3. Using laptop as desktop - can't wake it from sleep with wireless mouse or keyboard.

    • I'm having a very difficult time following the narrative in your last five (5) replies.
    I've tried to be as clear and concise as possible.



    • Have you or have you not installed Avast Free?
    I hadn't uninstalled it, only deactivated it; but just now I did uninstall it, then re-booted the laptop, put it to sleep and tried to wake it using the mouse. No luck.

    • You just posted: "Just now, I disconnected the mouse, keyboard and monitor; manually put it to sleep using the Start Menu icons (because the lid action is still set to do nothing); closed the lid; and when I opened the lid it woke up."
    • So the Notebook PC (laptop) "wakes up" now as long as the external devices (i.e., mouse; keyboard; monitor) are not connected to the ASUS device, is that correct?
    Mouse and keyboard connected or disconnected doesn't have any effect on what happens:

    - Opening the lid wakes the laptop.

    - If the lid is already open and I put the laptop to sleep, pressing the power button wakes up the laptop.

    - Lid open or closed, if I put the laptop to sleep and try to wake it using the mouse or keyboard, nothing happens.

    Wake from sleep - unwanted ethernet, versus mouse?

    Will not wake up from sleep

    I have 1809-17763.379 and if I choose sleep by right clicking the start button the computer will not wake up with the mouse or keyboard. It will wake up from screensaver with the mouse. If I push the power button it will wake up. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
