Computer turns on from hibernation?

    Computer turns on from hibernation?


    Well, I don't know if this is the best section to post this problem in, but I couldn't find any better one...

    Here's the problem, I turn my computer on hibernate mode at about 10pm, and then at around 3am my computer turns on. I don't turn it on, just when I wake its on (I check the Event Viewer to see what time it turns on). I thought that hibernate mode was zero power, so how would it be able to turn on? Is there a setting sayin that it should turn on at that time?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Hello reconrey,

    Check the wake source event viewer log to see if it IDs what woke the computer.

    3AM would most likely be the Automatic Maintenance schedule waking the computer to run for Windows Updates and such.

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn

    Thanks for the reply, however I checked the logs, and it woke at about 3:14am one night and another at 4:20am. So I am assuming that it is not maintenance, since it is not the same. Here is what is displayed for the action:

    Code:
    The system has returned from a low power state.

    Is that the only event available?

    In addition, you might also check using the tutorials below to see if they may help ID what's waking the computer.

    - You could use this one right after it wakes up.


    How to Enable or Disable Windows Media Center Updates to Wake Up the Computer - If you have Media Center added, then you might disable letting it wake the computer up to see if that may be one cause.

    How to See a List of Devices that are able to Wake Up the Computer - You could use this to see what devices area able to wake the computer, then use the tutorial below to disable them to test and see if one is the cause.

    Thanks again, I think I found the problem, there was a mcupdate_schedule in the task scheduler that came on right as the computer woke, I went into its properties and under the conditions tab "Wake the computer to run this task" was checked.

    Thanks!
