Hello everyone,

 

Since I bought my new laptop several months ago, it has been waking itself up out of sleep mode. If I leave it in sleep mode overnight, I can be sure that by morning it will be awake. If I'm in uni and I need to slip it back in its sleeve on sleep mode - a couple hours later I will later find the sleeve hot and the laptop awake.

 

I have tried things such as looking up in cmd propt things that have authority to wake the pc up, but it states that nothing does. I have disabled options on my anti-virus for background tasks. I am just not sure where to go from here as no success so far, can you please help?

 

I will be very happy to provide you with any info or logs you may need.

 

Thanks a bunch,

 

Ollie

Hi there Condobloke!

 

Thanks for your warm welcome and suggestion, unfortunately I disabled Cortana upon buying the laptop months back so it can't be that.

Have you read THIS PAGE    ??

 

There appears to be some good suggestions there...eg the command to discover exactly what woke your laptop could be beneficial in sorting the problem out
