  1. Windows computer turning on in the middle of the night


    Hello. For about 4 months now my Windows computer has turned on in the middle of the night. When I enter powercfg -lastwake, it told me the Power Button turned it on, even though I wasn’t touching it. My computer turns on in the middle of the day, too, and it’s an obnoxious waste of power and ruins my sleep. Please help.

    :)

  2. Laptop turning on in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

    hi, yesterday i woke up in the middle of the night and decided to turn over on to my other side, but then i noticed my laptop had just started turning itself on. I'm very sure I put it into shutdown that evening. and my monitor was turned off too. It didn't
    connect to the monitor by itself, so it displayed everything on the actual laptop screen. It turned on in the normal way:

    -black background, white circle with text in the middle

    -lock screen/sign in screen

    -no error messages

    I didn't know why it was doing this but was sleepy so just shut it down, and went back to sleep.

    Can someone help me?
