Windows 7: PC on the network preventing sleep of another PC

26 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 64bit
PC on the network preventing sleep of another PC

On PC 1, I set up sleep after 1 hour of idling. It's connected to the router with a cable.

Then there's a PC 2, connected with wi-fi. If PC 2 is on, PC 1 won't go to sleep.

(There's also a PC 3, connected with a cable, and it doesn't prevent sleep.)

Why is that?

Does wi-fi have anything to do with it?

All PCs are running Windows 7 and have almost identical configurations, at least PC 2 and PC 3.
