I put comp on sleep, came back to screensaver running
I put my computer to sleep by doing start button > sleep. When i came back 1.5 hours later my screensaver was running. How in the HELL could this of happened? My screensaver and power options setup is: screen saver on after 10 minutes > display off after 20 minutes > sleep mode after 30 minutes
I put my screen saver to 1 minute> display turn off at 3 min> HD turn off at 4 min> sleep turn on at 5 min and watched it. As soon as the computer put itself into sleep mode it automatically took itself right out.
EDIT: FIXED! I went to device manager > network card> Disabled all the Wake-On-Lan options except for "Wake on magic packet" and my computer went to sleep and woke up perfectly. Just for the record i unchecked "Wake on magic packet from power off state" and "Wake on pattern match" This has fixed my problem for me of windows turning back on and trying to go to desktop as soon as it goes to sleep (literally 1 second after it went to sleep it would try and restart itself). Cheers
