Hey guys, I have been trying to fix this on my own for over a week can't get it to stop. I think it's a software problem?

My problem: Computer will randomly turn on when in sleep mode it usually happens around 1-6am, but has happened during the day time. My computer is in the bed room so I can here it turn on.

Investigating: I have hurried and checked my computer right once it turned itself on and didn't see anything running in the background, no updates, no scanning etc...

Settings Changes: I have turned off auto updates of many things or switched them to only happen on Saturdays 6-10PM(didn't fix it)
I have gone through every single even scheduler(46) made sure none of them can wake computer from sleep mode.(didn't fix it)
I have scanned for virus ETC. Kaspersky/ Malwarebytes Pro(didn't fix it)
Checked MB bios and made sure all wake up settings are OFF(didn't fix it)

Conclusion: This is why I need your help as you can see I have tried many things but still cant fix it. THE ONE thing I can't stop is the stupid Skydrive I have even tried creating registry file to stop it. The only other thing I can think of is a electrical problem in the wall sending it a slight jolt or something? It is plugged in to a surge protector a Monster Flatscreen HTS 400, it also cleans the power... It says its grounded and protection is on...

Thanks for any help/suggestions! As you can tell I feel like I have tried everything I know... Also I just woke up and didn't get much sleep so if something didn't make sense that's why...

It probably wants go from sleep to a state of hibernation to conserve power. My mates usually just put their laptops to sleep and they start up in the middle of the night only to stop again. However i dont see sleep being of much use with the Win8 fast startup, maybe if you really dont want to close a certain app.

This is a long shot: any chance your pc is on your desk and the vibration slightly moves the mouse? That used to happen to me...

I used to get this exact same thing! It seemed that after a few hours it would just turn back on. I narrowed it down to either my PSU, or my harddrive. I ended up upgrading them both so I never realized what one it was, but it's gone now.

My PSU is fairly new. Maybe 6 months old.

It probably wants go from sleep to a state of hibernation to conserve power. My mates usually just put their laptops to sleep and they start up in the middle of the night only to stop again. However i dont see sleep being of much use with the Win8 fast startup, maybe if you really dont want to close a certain app.
I don't turn it off because it takes less than 1.5sec. From sleep, takes over 35sec from turn on. I put my computer to sleep probably 4-7 times a day that way it's not on all the time.

No vibration, also my mouse is wireless I always turn it off.

Make sure your nic has its wake on lan features turned off, in the bios and also in the device manager's advanced properties.

Could be sensible to either incoming network events / incoming pings / magic packets / regular WOL patterns

Check in device manager if you don't have "Let this device wake the computer" box checked under LAN or other components - I had them enabled for some reason a while back, hell that was annoying.

Hey guys, I have been trying to fix this on my own for over a week can't get it to stop. I think it's a software problem?

My problem: Computer will randomly turn on when in sleep mode it usually happens around 1-6am, but has happened during the day time. My computer is in the bed room so I can here it turn on.

Investigating: I have hurried and checked my computer right once it turned itself on and didn't see anything running in the background, no updates, no scanning etc...

Settings Changes: I have turned off auto updates of many things or switched them to only happen on Saturdays 6-10PM(didn't fix it)
I have gone through every single even scheduler(46) made sure none of them can wake computer from sleep mode.(didn't fix it)
I have scanned for virus ETC. Kaspersky/ Malwarebytes Pro(didn't fix it)
Checked MB bios and made sure all wake up settings are OFF(didn't fix it)

Conclusion: This is why I need your help as you can see I have tried many things but still cant fix it. THE ONE thing I can't stop is the stupid Skydrive I have even tried creating registry file to stop it. The only other thing I can think of is a electrical problem in the wall sending it a slight jolt or something? It is plugged in to a surge protector a Monster Flatscreen HTS 400, it also cleans the power... It says its grounded and protection is on...

Thanks for any help/suggestions! As you can tell I feel like I have tried everything I know... Also I just woke up and didn't get much sleep so if something didn't make sense that's why...

been dealing with this one myself actually, since i went 8.1

in a CMD prompt you can use
powercfg -lastwake

to find out the cause. for me it was windows 'scheduled maintenance' which can be disabled in the windows "action center"

default time is 2am.

Ok update: Worked great for about 40ish hours but this morning at around 4am my computer turned on again... Woke me up, so I just held the power button and turned it off. I really thought I fixed it this time.

Did you uncheck "allow this device to wake the computer"?

I would check the logs and see what's going on during the in question time frames. Check both windows logs and application log folders in computer management's event viewer.

Use the command line to find what causes the PC to wake up
One way to find out what is causing a wake-up problem is provided by the command line. Open a command prompt with elevated privileges and enter this command:

powercfg -lastwake

The last device that woke up the system will be shown

To find out which devices are enabled to wake up the PC, enter this command

powercfg -devicequery wake_armed


From Google...actually this is how I found the NIC kept waking my computer up

This is what it says... I always turn off my mouse and my keyboard tray slides in and locks in place, nothing can be bumped or touched...

I only saw this thread now, otherwise I would have suggested this sooner.
I had that same problem you are having, my computer was waking-up from S3 and the culprit was my X7 mouse.
powercfg -lastwake also listed the HID keyboard device which was an extension of the mouse.
Besides going in device manager and setting everything to not being able to wake-up the computer from S3, I also did this to the power profiles:

Worked for me.

It's pretty much using a sledgehammer to kill a mosquito, anyway here goes :

This is a solution for those who want their computers to never wake from sleep on their own and simpler solutions have not worked. Nothing other than tapping a button or opening the cover will wake it. Not the planned tasks which are scheduled to wake up your system such as Windows Media Center or the unknown causes. The only negative I’ve found is that a laptop will not wake to hibernate if the battery is getting too low. It will just go dead and any unsaved information will be lost.

1. Open a command-prompt and type the following lines of information. Press “enter” after each of the following.

2. powercfg -setacvalueindex scheme_current sub_sleep bd3b718a-0680-4d9d-8ab2-e1d2b4ac806d 0

3. powercfg -setdcvalueindex scheme_current sub_sleep bd3b718a-0680-4d9d-8ab2-e1d2b4ac806d 0

4. powercfg -setactive scheme_current


This changes and applies a new power scheme that stops the machine from being woken from sleep. It applies to the current power scheme on a computer which was the "balanced' power scheme on my latest test. This solution has worked on both Win7 and Win8.
To change it back just end each string with a 1 instead of the 0. I forgot to mention that this changes the default value of the current power scheme, so an additional step is needed. Go to Control Panel / Power Settings, and then change the settings back to default values under advanced settings for the current power scheme after entering any of these config changes.

If you wonder, the aforementioned config changes apply to following registry keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\BD3B718A-0680-4D9D-8AB2-E1D2B4AC806D

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Power\User\PowerSchemes\381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e\238c9fa8-0aad-41ed-83f4-97be242c8f20\bd3b718a-0680-4d9d-8ab2-e1d2b4ac806d

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\BD3B718A-0680-4D9D-8AB2-E1D2B4AC806D

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Power\User\PowerSchemes\381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e\238c9fa8-0aad-41ed-83f4-97be242c8f20\bd3b718a-0680-4d9d-8ab2-e1d2b4ac806d

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\BD3B718A-0680-4D9D-8AB2-E1D2B4AC806D

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\User\PowerSchemes\381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e\238c9fa8-0aad-41ed-83f4-97be242c8f20\bd3b718a-0680-4d9d-8ab2-e1d2b4ac806d

It modified the SKUACSettingIndex to a zero from a 1 in all these keys. These can be changed in regedit as an alternative. The power scheme needs to revert to default afterward in this case also.
