I got them BOTH off now.. I didnt type it EXACTLY like yours! Now both are those are off! THANK YOU! NOW, if I do get that problem again with SRVNET from the imac computer trying to access mine and not sleeping, can you guys TELL ME EXACTLY what to type in to OVERRIDE SRVNET? Thanks for ALL yoru help! This forum ROCKS!
You're welcome, and thanks for posting back with how you solved the second "override remove"!
If you do get the problem again, post a screen print showing the "active" request (powercfg -requests).
I'm DavidW7ncus in Seven Forums and was posting in your thread about this in Seven Forums
Win 7 Not Sleeping when a Imac is running near by! - Windows 7 Help Forums
If you do have this issue again, you could also post in your Seven Forum thread...
Now I'm on the alerts for your SF thread and this EF tutorial, so I should get notified either way.
Got it David, Thanks for loking out here in Win 8 as well as 7 .. Since I turned off ALL my sharing ( printers, netowrk, files and media ) her imac has not contacted my PC anymore! I dont know why the OVERRIDE didnt work for the SRVNET requests. But by turning off all my sharing in advanced seem to do the trick! If SRVNET does requet again, Ill post back here or on 7 and you guys and point me in the right direction to try to OVERRIDE it. I thought I did override SRVNET but BRINK said I didnt have any overrides! But when I ran CMD POWERCFG -requestsoverride it dod show up 2 times! But didnt work! Thanks AGAIN! marc..
I'm happy to hear that you got it sorted Harley.

I have recently upgraded my Win 8.1 PC to Win 10 Home using a Clean Install and am now having problems making it Sleep on the timer. previously on Win 8.1 it would sleep reliably once I had stopped using Homegroup for sharing.. Running powercfg - requests I get this message
How do I use the powercfg -requestsoverride to stop the "Legacy Kernel Caller" from stopping the PC from sleeping?
Hello Balein, and welcome to Eight Forums.
It would be worth a try to see if it may help.
Be sure to create a restore point first in case you have any adverse effects from it. This way you could just simply do a quick system restore to the restore point to undo it.

I have already tried using the powercfg -requestsoverride to stop the "Legacy Kernel Caller" using syntax powercfg -requestsoverride device "Legacy Kernel Caller" but I did not do anything. Is there an easy way to find out what the legacy device is that is causing the problem?
Looking in Device Manager I have one Legacy Device showing here, but I does not have any properties that can be amended.
