:nono:  My computer is waking up from hibernation right past five am.  (I am still asleep)  I went to command prompt and entered

powercfg -waketimers    This is the answer.  Timer set by (process) Legacy Kernel Caller expires at 5:17am on 1-16-14

I have no idea why this is scheduled to wake up, or what Legacy Kernel Caller is.  Can someone help me with this?

Hi

 

From my understandings, Legacy Kernel Caller should be a device driver for a legacy type hardware in your system. An internet search shows, entering the below command from an elevated command prompt will block legacy drivers from waking the system.

 

Powercfg -requestsoverride Driver "Legacy Kernel Caller" System

That did not work.  It is scheduled to wake up a little earlier tomorrow morning.  Powercfg -requestsoverride Driver Legacy Kernel Caller System ....I tried it this way, after the copy and paste of

Powercfg -requestsoverride Driver "Legacy Kernel Caller" System did not work.  I then tried it both ways, taking the word System off too, that didn't do it either.
