Windows 7: wake-on-lan activated : computer keeps waking up by itself

31 Mar 2013   #11

win7 64bits

No the computer was waking up by itself 2 minutes after it went to sleep

I just discovered that it was caused by Samsung SSD Magician. I uninstalled the program and it's better now.

Just looked at every items inside the Event Viewer for the Task Scheduler... The only task set to wake the computer is WindowsUpdate but i can't disable it

Glad to see you found it :)

What you may be able to do, for the update, is go into the actual task and change the activation time to one that is more compatible with your needs, setting it to 3 PM rather than 3AM (or whatever it's set to), would be more likely to activate when the system is on.

A more drastic alternative would be to set windows update to not check for updates - of course this would mean that you would have to manually perform this task, and risk running a system that is not as secure as it might be

One obvious but often overlooked item is the humble mouse - with the high resolution of modern mice it's not unknown for the slightest touch on furniture to move the mouse enough to wake a system

I don't use hibernation , just sleep. An earthquake won't wake my machine up.
