I noticed that my PC was not sleeping correctly. I looked it up on google and ran  powercfg -requests


Is this a virus?

Have you recently performed any virus/malware scans on your machine?

The An active remote client has recently sent requests to this machine. is a part of the operating system.  This is not an indication that the computer is infected.


To resolve the sleep issue press the Windows key windows-key.png  and the R key to open the Run box.


Copy and paste  cmd (admin) in the Run box, then tap/click on OK.  This will open the Elevated Command Prompt.


Copy and paste the command below in the Command Prompt, then press Enter.


powercfg /requestsoverride driver srvnet system
