Wont return to sleep after mceupdate

Hello my htpc is setup for live tv so it wakes at 3am to update the guide etc. i noticing every morning when i wake at 7am the pc is still on. basically wont return to sleep. if i start the pc from an off state and wait 15 mins it will go to sleep as per my sleep settings. but it wont after waking to update.

last wake confrims mceupdate is waking the computer, how do i check to see what is stopping it from going back to sleep. Nothing out of the ordinary is running.

I've went into multimedia settings and checked off to allow the pc to sleep even when sharing media.

Any advice?

Hello Rsoares,

You might see if playing with the return to sleep timeout period setting for an unattended wake up may be able to help any.
