Windows 7: Insomniac Computers

11 Feb 2010   #11

Win 7

Yes it does look like WinUpdate checks at 3AM but there is no way to configure this other then turn it off. As far as I can tell I have only been suffering this insomniac problem for the last couple weeks but I can't think of anything I have installed or tweaked that could have cause it. I have had WinUpdate on automatic check for months.

Does anyone know how I can tell what is waking the computer? Even if I stay up all night I probably wouldn't be able to tell.

Ensure your network adaptor is set in device manager to not wake up the PC, and then disable the option to wake with the keyboard in the BIOS. Then watch the mouse.
