So when I go somewhere, like today, I sleep my computer until I get back. Lately it has been turning back on after a while sleeping. Today I left the house around 8:45am and slept the PC. I got back at around 12:30pm and the computer was on. This has happened before. What is going on? I do not have Intel Smart Connect installed.

 

SOLVED: For those people who have this same issue, read the second post.

You can use the powercfg.exe command to see what devices are allowed to turn on your computer, and disable them if you need.

I'm sure you can find out how to do that yourself from this tutorial :)

No problem. Basically, you only want to leave your keyboard and your mouse in the wake_armed output and remove all the rest.

I wake up my computer from sleep using the power button, actually. So I disallowed both the keyboard and mouse from being able to wake the system.

Alright well that's good to know! I usually wake up the computer from hibernation using the power button, but the keyboard or mouse to wake it up from sleep mode.
