    Wake source unknown


    Hi forum hivemind,

    I'm wondering if anyone has had an issue with their labtop turn on while transported without a known cause.

    I've been to self help sites that have told me various solutions such as:

    Win 10:

    Command prompt/

    powercfg -lastwake


    And it comes up with no logged issues.

    yet.

    When I check Event viewer it comes up with(?) :


    Wake source unknown [​IMG]


    Edit: [sorry for the screen extension on the screen shot]

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Waking self up at random times in morning with Wake Source: Unknown

    After installing Windows 10, my computer started waking it self up at random times between 7am and 9am. I check the power troubleshooter in the even log and it is just coming up with Wake Source: Unknown.

    When I run "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" the only thing coming up is the keyboard. I disabled wakeup on lan and have turned off wake timers. I did have this problem for on windows 8.1.

    I tried suggestions from similar topics with no luck. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

  3. How to tell what wake source is when Wake Source: Unknown

    I think I finally found out how to tell what the wake source is in this scenario:

    This shows the "Reboot" task under UpdateOrchestrator which I believe might have been causing the problem.

    Instructions on how to disable it are found in Step 2 of this fantastic answer: https://superuser.com/a/973029/226996

    I'll report back if I'm finding the computer is still waking and I can't determine the source with this method...

    How to tell what wake source is when Wake Source: Unknown

    Same problem as so many people: My computer wakes itself, but I can't determine the source. Windows 10. It's happened around 3:40am, 12:21am, etc. Seems to happen every few weeks.

    These are some details regarding my system configuration after the wake happens:

    Configruation:

    powercfg -devicequery wake_armed → NONE

    powercfg -waketimers → There are no active wake timers in the system.

    Power Options Advanced Settings → Sleep → Allow wake timers → Disable

    (Classic) Control Panel / System and Security / Security and Maintenance / Automatic Maintenance → "Allow scheduled maintenance to wake up my computer at the scheduled time" unchecked.

    All wake on "Magic Packet" or "Pattern Match" or "Link Settings" of all network adapters are set to "Disabled" in the Advanced settings of the devices in Device Manager.

    ASRock Z170 Extreme 7+ motherboard (no "wake from sleep" options found in UEFI).

    Diagnostic Info:

    Event Viewer → Wake Source: Unknown

    powercfg -lastwake → Wake History Count - 1, Wake History [0]: Wake Source Count - 0
