My PCs wake up by themselves from standby or hibernation!

    My PCs wake up by themselves from standby or hibernation!

    I'm having this problem since some months now: my PC randomly powers up by
    itself when in hibernation or standby, which is very annoying.
    I also have a laptop which has the same problem. This sucks, since sometimes
    i want to use it and the battery has been killed because it powered itself
    up and ran all the time without me knowing.
    Both machines are running Vista. All the wake-up options in the BIOS are
    disabled, and there are no wakeup timers in the BIOS. The laptop powers up
    even if nothing is connected to it (no network, no usb, no nothing).
    What the hell is going on? How can I prevent my pcs from waking up by
    themselves? When I put them in hibernation or to sleep, i just want them to
    stay there until I power them up by myself. Just using shutdown is not a
    solution
    I hope you can help me to find a solution...

    That's a good one. I like it. A little levity never hurt anyone.

    Hi Hal9000,

    Check Task Scheduler for any scheduled tasks that have "wake the computer" under the Conditions tab. Don't forget to check "Show hidden tasks" under View in right pane.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Not levity. Vibration moving the mouse often wakes computers up. Turning
    it over prevents this.

    Sorry. I thought you were joking. It made me laugh. Anyway, I guess I learn
    something new every day. Thank you for the information.

    Here's a link that explains the TMM: (Transient Multimon Manager)

    http://whitepapers.techrepublic.com.com/whitepaper.aspx?docid=150397

    However, this may not be it though. I checked mine to & it was enabled with wake to without any problems.

    I guess if all else fails you can turn off "sleep" & "hybrid" & just use "hibernation" in Power Management. It'll take 30 seconds or so wakeup, but at least everything will shut down completely. No more hunting for what might be running to cause it to wake up.

    turning on

    Ok Hal9000,

    I found this new method for you.

    1. open Command Prompt
    2. type "powercfg -lastwakup"
    3. hit enter

    This will tell you what woke up your computer the last time. Now, the trick will be IDing what is spits up is the cause.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
