SOLVED: PC won't sleep on time

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My PC won't go to sleep. I've tried reading to it, giving it warm milk....nothing.

 

The settings seem right...I've googled and pretty sure everything is good.

 

It WILL go to sleep if I use the SLEEP command in the shutdown menu, and it stays asleep, so it doesn't seem to be something physical preventing it (like mouse vibrations or network....I turned off the mouse's ability to wake the PC).

 

Can anyone suggest where I look next?

While I appreciate the opinion on the benefits of sleep, it doesn't address the issue that my computer is not working as it should, and that I'd like to solve that.

do you have any programs open? sometimes my pc wont sleep if i had some video playing in VLC, video ends, VLC is still open, PC wont sleep. sometimes happens with chrome with youtube open.

OR

do you have any 3rd party power management software running? some laptops like lenovo come with that lenovo power manager or whatever. those shit programs usually overwrite the windows power options settings

hmm.. THAT I don't know.

Looking thru Task Manager, I don't see anything that leaps out.. MSI X Boost maybe...but it has no sleep options in it.

IT sleeps fine if I manually put it to sleep, it'll stay asleep... it just won't go to sleep.

 

I mean, I mainly just want the monitor to go to sleep, but even that's denied me.

sounds like either a software issue or something else is blocking it from going to sleep. check your lan or wifi adapters, mouse, keyboard settings to check if they're enabled to allow the device to wake the PC up. you could check your bios and disable wake on lan but for KB and mouse you gotta do it from within windows. still curious about a 3rd party software though. if all else fails, possibly its a windows issue. try running windows updates and check your mobo's site for any updates that my relate to this issue.

HAve to try in the morning.

I know wake with mouse is turned off---I saw that as a potential issue in googling.

Wake from LAN is on, for sure...but I'll turn it off to do some checking.

I mean, there's a lot of NVIDIA and MSI stuff in there that I have no idea what they do, that came with the system, so who knows :/

I've turned off wake on LAN... no change.

 

I activated the Screen Saver, set it to start after 1 minute.

 

It doesn't activate. so this might be the area to focus on for now, cuz I suspect it's whatever timer mechanism that's the problem.

forgot to mention, did you change settings in the "advanced power settings" as well? if you changed the "turn off the display" and "put the computer to sleep" only, somehow in the advanced options, the HDD settings might not change as far as ive noticed. there are alot more options under the advanced settings, look through those, you might have missed something.

Thanks...that's the page I saw before that I turned off the mouse after... guess I'll try unplugging various things, see if it's a hardware problem.

Ok, a comment on this page said that their mouse was constantly scanning, and was their problem, so I figured I'd unplug my mouse, but before I got there, I found a RF dongle for a game pad plugged in. (not a game pad I'm currently using).

Unplugged that, and 60 seconds later, screen saver.  60 seconds later, monitor sleep.

Thanks for the help @vaiwalker!
