    I tested this on one of my systems - works for me.
    David, Thanks for your help! I got the 1st off ( Driver srvnet ) and I tried to get the 2nd one off ( \filesystem\srvnet ) and it says I dont have permission to do that! I am running the cmd on the upper level as ADMIN.. can you guys point me in the right direction? Im 1/2 way there! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP GUYS!

    You're welcome, and thanks for posting back with how you solved the second "override remove"!

    If you do get the problem again, post a screen print showing the "active" request (powercfg -requests).

    I'm DavidW7ncus in Seven Forums and was posting in your thread about this in Seven Forums
    Win 7 Not Sleeping when a Imac is running near by! - Windows 7 Help Forums

    If you do have this issue again, you could also post in your Seven Forum thread...
    Now I'm on the alerts for your SF thread and this EF tutorial, so I should get notified either way.

    Got it David, Thanks for loking out here in Win 8 as well as 7 .. Since I turned off ALL my sharing ( printers, netowrk, files and media ) her imac has not contacted my PC anymore! I dont know why the OVERRIDE didnt work for the SRVNET requests. But by turning off all my sharing in advanced seem to do the trick! If SRVNET does requet again, Ill post back here or on 7 and you guys and point me in the right direction to try to OVERRIDE it. I thought I did override SRVNET but BRINK said I didnt have any overrides! But when I ran CMD POWERCFG -requestsoverride it dod show up 2 times! But didnt work! Thanks AGAIN! marc..

    I'm happy to hear that you got it sorted Harley.

    -requests = Lists active power availability requests you have.

    POWERCFG /REQUESTSOVERRIDE <CALLER_TYPE> "<NAME>" <REQUEST> = To override a power availability request list above.

    POWERCFG /REQUESTSOVERRIDE = Lists inactive power availability requests that you overrode above.

    I have recently upgraded my Win 8.1 PC to Win 10 Home using a Clean Install and am now having problems making it Sleep on the timer. previously on Win 8.1 it would sleep reliably once I had stopped using Homegroup for sharing.. Running powercfg - requests I get this message

    How do I use the powercfg -requestsoverride to stop the "Legacy Kernel Caller" from stopping the PC from sleeping?

    Hello Balein, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    It would be worth a try to see if it may help.

    Be sure to create a restore point first in case you have any adverse effects from it. This way you could just simply do a quick system restore to the restore point to undo it.

    Glad to be on this forum - the help you give across here and tenforums is unbeatable.

    I have already tried using the powercfg -requestsoverride to stop the "Legacy Kernel Caller" using syntax powercfg -requestsoverride device "Legacy Kernel Caller" but I did not do anything. Is there an easy way to find out what the legacy device is that is causing the problem?

    Looking in Device Manager I have one Legacy Device showing here, but I does not have any properties that can be amended.

    Try using this command:

    POWERCFG -REQUESTSOVERRIDE DRIVER "Legacy Kernel Caller" System
