Anyway, my screen print shows what a Realtek request can look like.

There is a sister site for Windows 10 if you're interested:
Windows 10 Forums

10forums, only one forum there too?

(:


Thanks...

Hi,
Which driver version do you have ?
I show 6.0.1.7525
I have hibernation off and really just use a screen saver so sleep is not really being used seeing as I have a ssd and cut back on many writes.
Plus I rarely if ever use 10.

I show the same driver version being used inside win-7 too :)

It looks like the OP solved this on Ten Forums here:
Win 10 has sleep apnea - Windows 10 Forums

It is the Realtek Network adapter, not the Realtek Audio device causing the wake up.

Yes, it was a simple solution. It is interesting how much time I spent with this in the Microsoft Community trying to figure out all sorts of strange suggestions.

I missed the answer because I went to Device Drivers/Sound and did not see the settings. I will never know how it was in Network settings....

Computer Keeps waking up from hibernation
I have a Lenovo laptop that recently decided to not stay hibernated. It will randomly wake up, seemingly moreso when I have a USB device like a keyboard plugged in. I thought that it might be the "Alllow USB device to charge when the computer is off" setting in BIOS, but after I made sure that...
