Something keeps waking up my PC and I cant figure out what

  1. #31


    I've been bewildered by this problem for about a week now, about the same time my GTX 570 video card went code 43 on me. But viewing the event log I noticed this "Customer Experience Improvement Program data was successfully consolidated into files that will be sent to Microsoft for analysis. These files will be sent only if the user has opted to join the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program.". This only appears on the days when my computer wakes up on it's own, at 6:19 AM.

    scheduled task that requested waking the computer.
    And how would you run that code? Admin powershell?

    I too just recently acquired this lovely issue.
    Computer wakes up around 4-5am and just stays on. What I find interesting is that this problem appeared out of nowhere, like Windows 8 is on a timer to eventually start to annoy you. Mission accomplished, Microsoft.

    To prevent the Regular Maintenance task from waking the machine at 3:00am, go to Action Center / Automatic Maintenance and disable the checkbox for “Allow scheduled maintenance to wake up my computer at the scheduled time”.

    Been there, done that, but which did not completely solve the problem. It turns out that my PC is very sensitive to any static electricity, even if i do not actually touch it. The other day it awoke when i started a laptop close by. I do leave one side of the case open, which i have done for years with a 8 year old PC as well, as i sometimes want to access hardware (after touching some metal elsewhere to discharge myself).
