An application to report events

Hi all,

I have a Dell studio XPS 1640, with windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.
I have this problem that My laptop turn on automatically!
I posted my problem in this topic, but didn't find any solutions.
Now I want to know, if there is an application that report me, for example why system turned on, meaning says to me what was it's cause?

Best regards,
Nima

Well windows keeps an event log, it can be found in the management console that can be reached by right clicking my computer and choosing manage.
There you can expand event viewer and then windows logs. It will help if you know the exact time the laptop last turned itself on, as there will be a lot of events listed in those various categories.

Thank you Maguscreed,

But how I found which events is refer to turning on my system?
I filtered events by "Last 24 hours" options, because system turned on last night.
But I couldn't find correct event.

it will take some digging around, like I said it's best to know exactly when it happened so you can use the times as a kind of reference point.
System and application might help narrow that down. If you have an idea of when you last turned it off. Just look for where the log starts back up after that time.

Ok, tonight I try discover the time of turning on.
Is there any way that I can delete all events to searching events easiy?
Because there is very old events that confuse me, Can I remove all events? Or removing may be dangure for system?

Dear Maguscreed,

I found events belong to automatically wake up system.
Last night, I cleared all events, and my lap top, waked up at 4:02 AM. There for I could find it's events.
Because of this problem,in battery option, I set "put the computer to sleep" after 1 min, and hibernate after 1 min on battery, there for system hibernated very soon.

This is link of system events pictures. I couldn't find what is the problem cause.
Can you pls look this pictures, perhaps you find.

Thanks a lot,
Nima

Is there anything else plugged into the laptop?
A printer?
A mouse?
anything at all?
you may want to try disconnecting the external devices when you sleep next.

I would also pick either sleep or hibernate and disable the other. They aren't supposed to be working at the same time.

Unless your computer has been hijacked?? I believe that there are malwares out there that enable a hijacker to remotely start your computer. Try checking your services by entering "services.msc" in the run box and check for anyway it can be accessed remotely. I would also do a FULL anti-virus with MSE and FULL anti malware check with Malwarebytes anti malware.

This sounds like a BIOS setting commonly referred to as "wake on demand" - the actual wording is different from manufacturer to manufacturer. Some BIOS have settings that instruct the computer to "wake up" from sleep/hybernate mode based on a setting such as a set day and time, mouse movement, keyboard input or remote signal over the network.

Reboot the computer and enter the BIOS set up. Search for settings related to power management or device management then turn off those that may cause the event. For example, one of my laptops has a setting to turn the system on based on day and time - I turned that setting off.

Easiest solution is to power down the system when not in use.

GEWB
