Computer Randomly and Partially Wakes up at Night

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've looked around the forums and on the net for a bit and can't seem to find anybody having my exact problem, actually its more of an annoyance. So here's what happens:

Randomly in the middle of the night when I have my computer put to sleep, it will wake up and run the fans, turn on its case lighting etc... and then go back to sleep after a couple of minutes. It doesn't happen every night and it's never been at the same time. Also the duration of time between when I put it to sleep and when it sometimes wakes up is different each time. The thing that's a bit odd about this is that it never loads an image to my monitors (I leave them on standby at night). That's why I said it partially comes out of sleep.

I've tried disabling the LAN wake up settings and such and I thought that it had done the trick because my computer hasn't woken up for a couple of days but it did it last night. I've also looked at the scheduled tasks etc... Any help would be appreciated, it wakes me up every time it wakes up. On wake up it initially runs all of the fans at max, and that coupled with the lighting is as good as any alarm I've ever bought! laugher.gif
