In the past I have done things like prevent mouse and keyboard and network card from waking my PC in the middle of the night, but I can't really figure out what change to make to prevent it from waking from this (see attached).  I also don't know what I would have changed to make this start happening out of nowhere.

thats because windows maintenance tasks are being run and in order for them to run the wake up has to happen so see what is alowed to wake the computer by running

PowerCfg -DEVICEQUERY wake_programmable

then simply disable the task that you want, rememebr if using WOL packets then leave the Ethernet enabled.

then to disable it choose

powercfg -DEVICEDISABLEWAKE <devicename>

Device name is what is populated from the last command.

Like so:

powercfg -DEVICEDISABLEWAKE "Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet"

Still not quite following you.  I think I did what I was told.  Thanks for your help by the way.

Nevermind! I forgot all my settings pretty much got set back to factory when I updated to 8.1... DUH! I personally don't like windows updates to download and install on their own.  I like to check every few days and install manually.  This setting was set back to recommended setting of download and install.

 

Thank you again.
