    That's what I'm saying. I don't think its a maintenance thing. I tell my computer to shut down every night and I wake up and the fan is running. Sleep it during the work day and come home and the fan is spinning.

    Then you got something waking the system up, check your Task Manager, see if you have any processes that want to start at certain times of the day. It could be Disk Optimizer, but I'm thinking it's an app that came with the system that loads on startup. Or, you have Wake on Lan turned on, and someone is trying to connect to your system remotely.

    I'll tell you this little story, I used to use Photoshop 9. It loads a service called LMserver or something. It has to be running, or Photoshop won't load. One day, I went to do some work, and when I came home, there was a brand new printout of the last thing I had ever opened in Photoshop - And I know I had not printed it myself. When I checked Event viewer, it told me that some remote process started LMserver, and it told my system to print that sheet!

    So after that, I BLOCKED the process from the net in the firewall, set it for Local Host Only. That never happened again. And I also went back to Photoshop 7 too.

    You can set 4 am as AM time and allow AM to wake up PC from sleep in Control Panel. Then you must put your PC to sleep instead of shutting it down or hibernating.

    I think you're right, i do not see any maintenance going on all night long
    (unless you are trying to backup a HUGE number of files),
    also considering that you have a pretty powered system, the
    PC must shut down ultimately, i would factory reset and if
    the problem persist bring for warranty repair.

    Is there a way I can check to see what is going on with my computer during a sleep session? I mean like full everything. see whats being run, how much power I'm using, what my CPU is at, temperature of computer itself, and anything else I can think of. I figured that if I can fix the problem while its in sleep mode, I can fix the problem while shut off.

    Also, I bought an HP Envy, so I can go around uninstalling all of HP's bloatware

    For HP's Bloatware, you should remove it with Yamicsoft's Windows 8 Manager's "Smart Uninstaller" - For instance to get rid of ALL of the wild tangent games, find the HP Game controller, you uninstall that, it should list ALL of the games installed, you will have to check them all off. Unless you want to keep one or two of them. After the uninstaller is finished, it will scan for what's left on the drive and allow you to choose the remaining files. If the uninstaller tells you it wants to reboot to finish, DON'T. Just let the scanner finish, and then remove all the extra gunk it may find.

    It's a free 15 day trial

    This issue probably caused by hardware driver problem.


    I have similar problem solved and would like to share. My laptop is TOSHIBA Satellite. After I install the Win 8.1, my computer fan blows at max speed for a few seconds when it is sleeping or shutting down, the situation never happened when I use the Win 7. After many tries and study, I find solution.


    I had installed the version 11.5.2.1001 of Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver on Win 8.1. After it is uninstalled, the problem is solved and fan will not blowing fast when computer shutting down. I installed new version 12.8.1.1000 of Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver and the problem never happens again.


    So, I guess Win 8.1 is a very new OS and you should update your hardware driver completely. The Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver is a basic optimization tool from INTEL. The older version may conflict with Win8.1. I suggest you to install only necessary drivers for your hardware (large part of hardware is already driven by Win 8.1 itself) and keep drivers the newest version.

    Have you been able to resolve this? My computer started doing the exact same thing. The fan came on at high speed in the middle of the night and now comes on anytime I turn the computer off? Not sure what I need to do to make it stop other than unplugging the computer completely?
