So I just installed a security program, and my windows 10 pc oddly goes to sleep and wakes back up instantly, twice. It seems like it stopped, but I would like to know if this should sound an alarm for any malicious activity.

Norton 360 downloaded from Norton.com. I was including what was done most recently. Thought it might help.

Okay well that checks out, though I am no fan of Norton antivirus it is legit software.

Any other software you installed recently?

Not really. That is what I installed like minutes ago. I was messing around with Msi Afterburner too. Could overclocking cause randomly sleeping and waking?

Yes it can, overclocking can make the OS unstable.

While it might not be entirely responsible I would not dismiss it, its my prime suspect so far.

disable overclocking and see what happens.
