My computer is unable to sleep automatically and if i manually set it, it will wake up after 1 hour.
Upon running powercfg -lastwake the system states that a particular process is responsible for setting a wake timer.
further checking powercfg -waketimers confirms that there is a process that constantly sets up a wake timer.
Timer set by [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume1\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks P
oint of Sale 9.0\qbpos.exe expires at 10:29:59 PM on 12/22/2010.
This process is set every hour from the running of the program. eg open at 9.29, it expires at 10.29. after 10.29 it will reset and expire at 11.29.
So there is no way I can put it to sleep for more than an hour.
Checking task scheduler reveals nothing related.
Please tell me there is a way to permanently block this process from resisting sleep, thank you!
I do not plan to prevent tasks from waking up Windows altogether, so please do not suggest disabling it from power configuration .
