    My Windows 8 PC Wakes Up From Sleep With Wake Up Disabled


    Hi, That's the question. I have my computer in my bedroom, so this is a real pain! The automatic maintenance is scheduled to 10am (I rescheduled it on purchase, when it annoyed the hell out of me at 3am). That one also still works and I'm fine with that. But it's just acquired without my permission a new wake up at 7am that I don't want - particularly when I wish to sleep in!! I recently installed iTunes, which coincided with the problem, but couldn't find anything on the program that suggested any type of maintenance time, nor does the powercfg (info I found when Googling to solve this problem) mention iTunes. I've tried Dr Google, which usually helps me solve problems such as this, but with no luck. See picture of power cfg. Can anyone help?

I've actually had this problem for a while, I really should have taken care of it sooner. It is mostly because I found ways around it, which probably aren't too good for my computer. If I leave music running in the background and put the computer to sleep then the error won't occur. Needless-to-say...
Hello, I hope this is the right thread. I recently redid all my windows as it was time to clean everything out. When all was said and done, I only wanted my keyboard to be the only thing that wakes my computer. I've disabled everything (network adapters, etc) and the mouse within device manager....
This began recently (with the 8.1 update). It'll wake up out of the blue (the monitor doesn't seem to turn on until I wiggle the mouse though) and then after like a minute it's back to sleep. I disabled the mouse from being able to wake it up and it's still doing it. Any ideas?
Hello, I've been using Windows 8 for almost a month now and it's been great. But, since around 4am today (ICT), this popped out of nowhere: Windows goes to sleep despite the Power Options being set to disable sleep both while on AC power and on battery. I have also checked the Advanced Power...
Hello folks, I just installed Windows 8 Professional 64 and tried to get Wake on Lan running. I already tried to disable the fast startup. But it didn't change anything. My Network driver is the newest one and Wake up on Magic Packet is enabled in the adaptersettings. With my old Windows...
My computer cannot sleep! I did a fresh install (upgrade) and the moment I got the desktop up and idle, I tried to put the computer to sleep. It did, then 5 seconds later, on it came again. Event viewer says "wake source unknown". I have updated all drivers from asus, and installed all...
