Alright Bloggees, in honor of this short month, I have also provided a short blog:
Have you ever noticed your new Windows 7 computer (or old Windows Vista one) waking up from sleep mode on its own? As strange as this sounds, it is also very possible. Here’s a tip that should fix this problem.
1. CHECK YOUR NIC SETTINGS:
– Right-click on My Computer, then select ‘Manage’
– Expand your network card under the Network Adapters section
– Double-click the NIC to open it
– Go to the Power Management tab and uncheck the option ‘Allow this device to wake the computer’
2. FIND OUT WHAT IS WAKING YOUR COMPUTER:
– Go to Start > Run > and type: powercfg -lastwake
– This will provide details on the item that most recently woke your computer
– Go to Start > Run > and type: powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
– This will provide details on all the items that are configured to wake your computer
3. IF ALL ELSE FAILS:
– Check your Power Management Settings in Control Panel (Control Panel > Power Settings > Change Plan Settings > Changed Advanced Power Settings)
– i.e. Multimedia Settings > when sharing media > allow the computer to sleep
Until next time, see you back here at the same blog site, same blog time, same blog channel (you get the idea). Have a good one!
