    Window keeps waking up laptop from Modern Standby


    Hi,
    On my new laptop (it's in my specs) that came with 2004 preinstalled so far I have figured out that updating it to 20H2 has brought back the option to enter Code:
    (in an elevated command window, and reboot after that) to revert from Modern Standby, or S0 Low Power Idle compatibility back to traditional-old S3 so I am using that for my temporary working solution.
    There's no option to disable Modern Standby in BIOS, and disabling Wake Timers also didn't help. And there wasn't even a Power Management tab to be found in the Intel WiFi 6 adapter's hardware properties panel until finally I got tired of getting frequent wakeups and decided to use the above registry hack.
    Running on 20H2, before the registry hack here's what it gave me:
    Code:
    After the registry hack with reboot, here's what I got instead:
    Code:
    Next, I unchecked the "allow this device to wake the computer" for the WiFi adapter, and I also turned the Wake Timers back on, just to see how stuff will behave. So far it hasn't woken up in a while.
    Is there anything I could try to get Modern Standby to work properly without it waking itself back up for no good reason, usually within the next hour?

    :)

    Scheduled wake from DRIPs (Modern Standby)

    So, I've spent the last week scouring the web for this and failed!

    I am trying to wake a Dell XPS laptop overnight to run maintenance tasks, including backup to local network server, and so far it has proven impossible.

    While in the "Resiliency Phase" (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...modern-standby) all apps run in an Interactive Session are suspended by the Desktop Activity Moderator, but tasks running In Session-0 appear able to run. However, once the computer has entered DRIPS any task that relies on sleeping hardware will not succeed and on the Dell XPS, which runs in "Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) Network Disconnected", this includes the network adaptors (both WiFi and USB connected Ethernet), so even backup tasks that I can get to run still fail due to no network connection.

    Waking from DRIPS on a schedule seems impossible! Wake timers do not work on Modern Standby systems, so neither do any user created Task Scheduler tasks (even ones set to run under SYSTEM). About the only thing that will occasionally wake the system is Windows Update, but it seems there is no longer any way to schedule that. Microsoft docs say UWP apps can (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...y-wake-sources) but it seems no one has written one for this purpose.

    Surely there must be a way, short of writing your own UWP app, to get a Modern Standby system to wake from DRIPS for out-of-hours for housekeeping?? There don't seem to be any code snippets we can use. This just seems crazy hard!

    All that needs to happen is for the software equivalent of a "power button press" or even, I think, just the computer to leave DRIPS. The tasks are waiting to run and as soon as the system wakes they should keep the system awake until they have completed.

    Hopefully someone can make me look a total fool and point out something I have missed!

    Scheduled wake from DRIPs (Modern Standby)

    Hi Jong did you find a solution to this issue? I recently purchased a new Acer laptop that only supports 'Modern Standby' and like you I need to schedule tasks(Task Scheduler) to wake from S0(Modern Standby) to run programs that I have written, but have had no luck. I edited the registry to disable CsEnabled = 0(Connected Standby) "HKey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\CsEnabled" and subsequently reinstate S3(Standby), unfortunately upon waking from S3 the laptop graphics are distorted and the laptop requires a hard shutdown to recover, Event Viewer shows System went to S3 and woke. Acer support claims S3 isn't supported. As it is, my hair is thinning, I have been at this for a week now, I am going to take the laptop to Acer support as it is effectively a product that is not working as advertised...

    Modern Standby - slow wifi after wake

    I have fast internet speeds over wifi when I connect to the network (approx. 600Mbps). If my machine goes to sleep (modern standby enabled) and I wake it up after a while, speed drops from the original speed to a pretty constant 20Mbps. If I disconnect from
    wifi and re-connect the speed is back to normal. None of the other machines in my environment show this behaviour, older windows based Lenovo think pad and mac devices have consistently good performance. This is the first windows-based device supporting modern
    standby and the only device showing the issue.

    Lenovo x1 Carbon 7th gen, with Intel AC-9560, all drivers up to date and firmware current. Have been observing this for a while and several driver iterations now. If I disable modern standby and select linux mode in the bios for standby the speed is normal
    after wake up.

    I did research lenovo and intel boards and this problem seems to be rooted in windows.
