    computer hibernates and then immediately resumes again


    Hi

    Windows 8.1 all working fine, but when I hibernate it then resumes again seconds later for no apparent reason

    Tried powercfg /lastwake but it is not telling me what caused it to wake

    Any ideas as to what I can do to stop this?

    Do you have any led mice/keyboards? Those tend to make the computer wake up, could also be a webcam.

    yes my mouse is - but have gone into device manager and set it so that device doesn't wake up my PC - and surely if it was that then powercfg /lastwake should tell me?

    Thanks for reply though

    Hello Wingers,

    In addition, check to see if it may be your network adapter waking the PC. You could set it to not be allowed to wake the PC the same way as the keyboard.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    sorry should of said - done network adapter too

    running powercfg -devicequery wake_armed shows NONE - so Windows doesn't think any of my devices are enabled to wake the PC

    You might also take a look at your wake source log in Event Viewer to see if it may show anything helpful.
    Did you add Windows Media Center by chance? If so, then you might see if disabling it's updates may help.

    Test by having all devices (ex: USB) unplugged from the computer to see if one of them may be waking it back up.

    have just reinstalled my PC from scratch to fix a different issue - and still I have the hibernate problem

    The problem isn't that it just wakes up from hibernate, it is more like it is restarting instead of hibernating, as it doesn't just resume, as when it comes back on all apps/windows are closed

    If you like as a test, use the tutorial below to add "AHCI Link Power Management - HIPM/DIPM" to your power plan options, then set it to HIPM+DIPM to see if it may help. It helped for my PC's restarting when resuming from sleep issue, and hopefully it may for you as well with your resume from hibernate issue.
