How to stop tasks from waking up PC?

One of my PCs keeps waking up from standby, with no input from me. I have set things so that the (home) network and devices (keyboard/mouse) should not do this, but I still have the problem.

Hi, sorry not to have come back before... So far, I have done nothing, mostly for fear of messing up what I already have. If I go ahead and succeed (and definitely if I don't!) I'll post back..

Thanks. I have seen in the interim though that it is X-Plane.exe that suddenly goes to 100%. No other processes seem to be involved.

May be a bit 'specialist' for here then? Unless anyone knows...

Why am I getting episodes of 100% CPU usage?

I use my main PC to run X-Plane 11 only (flight simulator). It mostly runs well, but for the past several days, every 10-15 minutes the CPU cores all start running at 100% and the simulator all but...

OK, that's clear. Many thanks for the replies. It might be a week or so before I can get round to carrying this out, but it should be fairly straight forward. :-)

Hi. Thanks for posting.

But we are at crossed purposes. I know I can make a 100GB partition, but I needed the whole 2TBs for the data (the reason I bought the drive in the first place). I...

Yes, this is for specific use (X-Plane Ortho4XP terrain data, to be precise!) On an external HDD there is so much data being read, it causes micro-stutters. I don't have an internal HDD - in this...

With respect, nothing is 100% reliable, and I have had Macrium refuse to recognise an image that it made. There's not really a lot of room for mistakes. You just select the restore operation and...

Thanks, but no. I want the 'backup' boot partition to be identical to the one I have now, both Win7x64, one a clone of the other.

What would that give afterwards, at each boot? Both discs need to be connected after this has been done. Thanks.

I can't use all my 500GB SSD for Windows - I need it for other stuff too :-)

Making a 'backup' boot partition?

I know there is a lot on the forums here about multi-boot and might just be able to go ahead and achieve this without further advice....

I may give it a try, thanks. I've used the All CPU Meter for years and am kind of used to it (and its easy-to-read graphic interface), but if it's not giving the full picture, probably time to move...

I think that the 'All CPU Meter' is not registering any usage over 4GHz.. when I look in CPU-Z, I can see that the clock speed does indeed go over 4GHz. Sorry, probably a flase alarm?

The temp. is fine - I monitor it and even at 100% core usage it rarely goes above 60 degs, usually lower. The feature, as I say, is enabled in the BIOS.

A 1080Ti will fit, I checked, but there are size variations I guess.

To be honest, did quite a lot of research into this and may be that for my needs a 1070Ti would work just as well, while saving...

Which GTX 1080 Ti?

I run X-Plane 11 on a mini format PC: i7-4790K @ 4GHz, 16GB RAM.. but the GTX970 4GB is a bottleneck and I am thinking of biting the bullet and buying a 1080Ti. X-Plane would certainly run a whole...

Intel CPU Turbo mode?

My CPU is an i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz (i.e. not overclocked). I use the PC to run X-Plane 11, pretty much exclusively (I have another PC for everything else), which quite often pushes the CPU to 100% use...
