Hi Brink,
Hope I am not hijacking thread.
This problem just started.
Followed your link for "last wake."

Hello PSCO,

You might see if you may be able to use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to see it may be able to stop that device from being able to wake the computer.

Devices - Allow or Prevent to Wake Up Computer

Hope this helps,

Hi Brink,
Thanks for your quick reply.
I followed your link and it still says "Gigabit Network connection".
I know that is the problem, but I have it unchecked in Device Mgr.
Thanks anyway.

Did that stop this device from waking the computer?

If not, then using OPTION TWO as well may help if the device is still listed in the last wake command and the command from step 2 in OPTION TWO.

Already tried step 2 in option 2 - have keyboard, mouse and network adapters unable to wake computer.
The " last wake" still says Gigabit adapter, but I have it unable to wake computer.
Strange.

That is strange. You might go ahead and uncheck the two "Respond...." options in your left screenshot above as well to see if that may help. It may be waking the system even though it's not suppose to.

Unchecked both, and tried sleep.
Still woke - ran " last sleep" and again showed "gigabit network adapter."
I hate to take all your time - guess I'll have to live with it.
Thanks.

Hmm, ok. Does it still show it using the command below from OPTION TWO?

powercfg -devicequery wake_armed

Here's the last pic - ran both of your commands.

Ok, thank you. Now, see if running the command below in an elevated command prompt may help afterwards. It looks like you had left out the full description as below when you tried the command earlier.

Code:
powercfg -devicedisablewake "Intel<R> 82579V Gigabit Network Connection"
