  1. Windows 10 wakes from sleep after 2 hours


    Whenever I sleep the computer, it wakes after a couple hours, though not at any regular interval and usually at an unusual timestamp such as 12:32.51 (i.e., not at 12:30.00). It is Windows 10 Pro, Version 1903, build 18362.388, but all recent builds have had the same problem.

    • there are no wake timers (per `powercfg -waketimers`)
    • wake timers are disabled anyway
    • only the keyboard is allowed to wake the computer (network devices and mice are prohibited)
    • I have tried every solution proposed in this thread


    The system log reports "unknown" reason for the wakeup every time. Please help, it's really becoming a problem!

    :)

    Windows 10 wont stay in sleep mode

    yes, it was already off.

    its waking up one hour after it sleeps for about 2 minutes, then sleeping again. How the eff can i track what it does in that time if nothing shows in powerCFG or the event log?

  3. 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.

    Windows 10 wakes from sleep after 2 hours

    Windows 10 - Wakes immediately from sleep.

    Hello t4ord,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Sleep mode saves the state of all open applications to memory, then powers down both the display panel and hard disk drive. However, if it often wakes up from Sleep mode, you need to change the Sleep settings under Power &
    sleep. You can also refer this link regarding shutdown, sleep,
    or hibernate your PC.

    If that doesn’t help, kindly check with the steps listed below and see if it works.

    Method 1: Restore default settings of power plan.

    Let’s restore the power settings to its default and check if it makes any difference. To do that,

    • Go to Control Panel and select Power Options.
    • Click on Change advanced power settings.
    • Select the option Restore default settings for this plan.

    Method 2: I suggest you to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the following article and see if it helps.


    Let us know the results. Will be glad to assist you further, if the issue persists.

    Regards,

    Mala S
