Windows 7: Unexplained Wakeup

27 May 2013   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Unexplained Wakeup


I have two PCs, the desktop cable-connected the laptop is wirelessly-connected, and a third device wireless Blu-Ray player connected to an AP (N600 Wireless Dual band router WNDR3400v2).
  • The problem is whenever one PC is either hibernating or sleeping, starting other one wakes up the hibernating/sleeping one.
What's your recommendation for solution?

Thank you
