Hi Guys,

 

I recently ran into an issue where my desktop would wake up immediately after going to sleep. 

 

Specs:

- ASRock X79 Extreme6 Motherboard

- Intel Xeon E5-2660 CPU

- Samsung 840 EVO SSD

- Gigabyte GV-N760OC-2GD

- Windows 7 Professional x64

 

I've tried pretty much every method out there:

- Disabled all devices from being able to wake up the computer up (including network adapter)

- Used powercfg -lastwake and devicequery wake_armed in cmg

- Removed Samsung SSD Magician

- Enabled CPU3/6 and Package C State Support in BIOS

- Advanced Power Settings: Disabled wake timers and changed multimedia settings to allow computer to sleep

- Checked Event Viewer and wake up source is shown as unknown (wouldn't show Process ID in details either)

- Cleared all ports aside from monitor and keyboard, then tried same with mouse

 

Please not that it's not waking up a random time, but won't go to sleep at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Will it not go to sleep AT ALL or turns back on right after you hit the "sleep" button? Is sleep enabled?


I prefer Linux. Windows 10 is just to invasive for me.

AlexSmithFanning, it turns right back on after I hit the "sleep" button. Sleep is enabled.

Will it go to asleep if you close the cover?

Has it ever gone to sleep correctly or is this a new problem?

 

The video card and it's drivers is I think quite often a cause of issues like this.  Do you have current drivers installed?

OldPhil: It's a desktop

 

jonuk76: It has gone to sleep correctly but started doing this about 2 weeks ago. I just installed the latest NVIDIA driver (GeForce 334.89) and the issue persists

Roll back the driver in control panel, very good chance that will fix it.

I rolled the driver back to 9.18.13.2049 but it didn't fix the problem...
