Computer will wake up from sleep after certain time on Windows 10

Original Title: Windows 10

Why is it when I put Windows 10 to sleep it wakes itself up a couple of minutes later?

Solution 1

Also if you run a command prompt admin (from right-clicking your Start button), you can type powercfg /lastwake and it should tell you what device asked your computer to wake up.  Then go into device manager and set that device (probably network or mouse) to not be allowed to wake up your computer.

Solution 2


The above issue might occur due to presence of virus/malware content, power components corrupted/missing, third party applications/programs conflicting with Windows 10 installed on the computer.

Method 1: Run the Power troubleshooter by following the steps below and check if any power components have changed, corrupted or missing from the system.

  1. Press Windows logo key on the keyboard, type troubleshooting and select the top most search result.
  2. Click on View All from the left side panel of the window.
  3. Select Power from the options, click on Advanced option and check Apply repairs automatically option.
  4. Follow the on screen instructions and wait for the troubleshooting to complete.
  5. Check for the missing/corrupted power component status of the troubleshooter, close the window and check if the issue is resolved.

Method 2:

If the issue persists, then try to restore the power plan settings to default and check.

Follow these steps:

a. Type Power in search.

b. Select Power Options.

c. Check if the preferred plan is Balanced.

d. Click on Change when the computer sleeps and select Restore Default settings for this plan.

Method 3:

A program or scheduled task might be waking your computer. By default, Power Option settings do not allow scheduled tasks to wake the computer from sleep or hibernate. However, some programs might awaken the computer if these settings have been changed.

To prevent programs from waking your computer:

a. Go to Power Options.

b. On the Select a power plan page, click Change plan settings for the plan that you want to change.

c. On the Change settings for the plan page, click Change advanced power settings.

d. On the Advanced settings tab, expand Sleep, expand Allow wake timers, choose Disable for both when your computer is running on battery and when it's plugged in, and then click OK.
