Pc Keeps Waking Up

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a little problem, which is getting quite annoying . Because my pc wouldn't go to sleep after a backup was performed I decided not to bother and disable the 'Wake this computer up for backup' option.

Problem is that my pc keeps waking up not matter what I do.

Has anyone experienced this? Is there some sort of tool to find out what is waking your pc up?

I believe Whs client doesn't use Wake-on-lan, so i guessed is should be a planned task of some sort, but I couldn't find anything there.

I had the same problem som time ago. I found a solution for my problem.

Go into the config panel - device manager and search for all mice and keyboards + usb devices and check all entries in properties - power management.

Be sure that you uncheck every "allow this device to wake the computer".

Only for keyboard, mouse and other USB devices off course, don't change this on your network card.

Success!

Another thing to check on your Nic is to disable "pattern matching" for WoL. The setting may not be there, but it's worth checking for.

Go to Device Manager, and open the properties for "Network Adapters". In the Power Management tab, make sure that the box that says "Allow this device to wake the computer" is unchecked.
