    Won't Hibernate


    Hello guys,
    when I try and Hibernate my PC it goes off then 5 seconds later it comes back on.
    I have done the 'Power Options' to customize it so nothing would wake the PC, any tips?

    Hello Partian,

    You could check your wake source log to see if it may show if something that woke the computer when this happened.

    In addition, check to see what devices are able to wake the computer. One of them could be the culprit.
