So the problem started a few years ago on my old computer, when i put it on sleepmode after a few hours i was starting up again on its own, and it did this not every day but just some days after each other and then a long time it didnt do it.

now i have build my own game pc and iv got the same problem but worse it wil sometimes start up right after i put it on sleep mode or after a few minutes or hours. it sometimes even start up right after i shut it off completely. also it does it a lot more often then on the other pc.


i tried alot to fix it but nothing helped

what i tried:

i looked at sceduled updates (didnt look into this alot)

i turned off wake on mystery package.

i looked at power options and nothing seems to help.


pleas help me im out of ideas and i hate this is happening

you clearly have some program waking it up.
It could even be USB Wake settings.
Those are in power settings>advanced, and if you have a phone or something plugged in, it could be waking it also.
I think you can also set your computer to need a mouse ~click~ or keyboard button press to wake, though im not sure about that one.

Command prompt


powercfg –lastwake


That will tell you what is waking up the PC. When you find out what it is just go into its settings and disable its ability to wake it up. Hope it works for you man.
