Whenever my PC (Windows 10 build 14393.1770) is in hibernate mode, it decides to wake up at 10am every day on its own.
With bios preventing all kinds of wake ups, after searching EventViewer and not finding much of anything interesting there, I finally came across the "powercfg -waketimers" command which showed (one and only) wake timer for 10am. Task Scheduler confirmed that rempl/remsh.exe is auto-configured to wake up my PC.
- What does rempl/shell.exe task specifically do? What does this specific task maintain?
- Does it want to wake up and do something only on my environment or ALL Windows 10 users will have this task waking up their PC at 10am?
- Hibernate mode does not seem very useful if we know the PC will be awake within a day. It does not shut down or go back to hibernate afterwards from my experience. Is this normal?
- If I disable timers, would the rempl/shell.exe maintenance still be automatically performed? Just later when I am actually logged in? If I want my PC mostly be in hibernate mode and use it rarely, is there any downsides from disabling all timers (even "Important Wake Timers")?
