PC randomly waking from sleep.

My PC randomly wakes from sleep. I am 99% sure that the wifi card is the culprit. When I turn off "allow this device to turn on the PC" the issue seems to stop. The issue is that this is something I need for wake on WLAN. Is the another solution to this problem?

Why?

Then something on your WLAN send wake signals to your PC... find the culprid, repair it with a hammer and everythign is fine...

 

(kind of did that in our new office building... some device with a scanable IP was sending rubbish to the label printer, if started it would print out 100 labels with nonsense on them... sending print jobs every 10-30 seconds... no one knew which device had the IP, so I went digging and clubbered everything that was on, that shouldn't be... culprit was dead then... no more printjobs that weren't user sent... =P )

A hammer might not be the best option, but is there another, less brute force, tool I can use to narrow down the search.

you can, when you are on your machine, which is online, look for incoming connections... then you will perhaps see which device may trigger the wake in wifi.

open Command Prompt as an administrator and type in powercfg/lastwake.

 

Then type powercfg/waketimers
