PC Wakes Itself Up From Sleep

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Don't really know where to put this, as I don't even know which part in my rig is causing this, so I'll just plop it in this subforum if you guys don't mind

This is a relatively new problem I've encountered.
It started after I upgraded to an SSD and reinstalled Windows and started anew. I followed Sean's Windows 7 SSD/HDD Installation Guide and optimized my install, too.

But now, it seems that when I press the power button on my case or use the start menu to put my computer to sleep, it wakes itself up. It usually wakes itself up in a few seconds after I tell it to sleep, but sometimes it lasts over a minute (40 seconds of staring at the computer, and then 20 seconds of slowly backing towards the staircase to see if it auto-wakes itself, before it's out of my sight).

What's the cause of this? Any ideas?


My 690II Advanced's front panel had a grounding issue (or something) that caused it to reset the PC every time I touched it (or when I was plugging in a flash drive/Xbox360 controller). I unplugged the front panel RESET cable and the problem went away, but could this be related to my current problem? (my PC resets without me touching it, though. It also does this when there are things plugged into the front panel USB ports. I haven't tried unplugging the USB accessories that go into the USB ports on the motherboard yet)

Maybe your mouse sensitivity is way up and little vibrations on your table will make it mouse and wake your computer up; This happened to me once.

sad-smiley-002.gif I need to reinstall Windows 7 again???


EDIT: My mouse doesn't seem to have the ability wake my computer up. Only pressing the power button/pressing a key on the keyboard does.

Go into your power options and make sure that no features or programs have ability to wake. Wake up should only occur when you press a specific key.

I disabled "Allow wake timers" in the power options, will test tomorrow.

I can't find wake on lan (is it sometimes abbreviated to WOL?)
Should I disable "Wake on Magic Packet" and "Wake on pattern match"?

To keep your computer from wakin, stop your mouse from shakin.

I would give them a try. I'm googling right now to learn more about why windows wakes up. You are using windows 7, right?

He already tested his mouse. It's not it, waking by mouse movement is already disabled for him.

Had the same problem. After loading up Win7 on an SSD, it would immediately wake itself from sleep. Turning off wake on lan fixed it.


To turn power management features on or off

Open Network and Sharing Center (click the Start button, type Network and Sharing in the Start Search box, and press Enter).

Click the Change adapter settings link in the upper left of the navigation pane.

Right click the network connection you want to enable/disable power management support on and click Properties.

Click Configure.

On the Power Management tab, un-check Allow this device to wake the computer.
