    Display wakes up on its own


    And this happened when I'm asleep as the PC is in my room. So yes, when the display wakes up, it's bright enough to wake me. This is the second time this happened. First time this happened was months ago so I know it's not often when it happens but I never know when this will happen.

    I've posted the info from the event viewer. It would happen just before 6:00 in the morning. Weird because that's about what time this happened before when it woke me up.

    Here are my specs

    Never mind, I looked into some things and hopefully it's been solved.

Hello everyone, I am trying to trace down my computer waking up unexpectedly at random intervals. I am hoping that there is log that I can look into or turn on that will tell me what is waking or how often my computer is waking up. Thanks Steve
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?
