    Windows 8 wakes up from 6AM-9AM. Every 15 minutes.


    I've been having this issue for about the last week were my PC will wake up at seemingly random times. It started with Windows maintenance at 4 AM, I fixed that issue. Now my PC is deciding to wake up 3 hours before it's scheduled wake up time at 6 AM and then shut down and wake up again. I just can't for the life of me get to the bottom of this issue no matter how hard I look.

    Here are some screenshots to show you what I've changed and already.

    Only other thing I can think of which may/may not be involved is Screen Saver. Check your settings there.

    Thanks that could be the issue. I change them around and we'll see if it works.

    The File sharing may of been waking up my PC. Turned that to let my PC sleep and hopefully that fixes that!

    None of these solved the issue sadly. It does appear to happen less frequently though.

    Edit:
    As in every half hour it seems to be turning on then sleeping again.
