My PC won't go to sleep

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hiya.

I'm using "balanced" power options, the screen and pc are set to turn off after 15 minutes of inactivity. But nothing happens, the PC still stays on. Can anyone tell me why is that?
Also, when I force it to sleep via "FN + sleep" buttons on the keyboard, it turns off, but then turns itself on again automatically at random time of the night.
How do I fix it?

I'm using Windows 8.

Try unplugging your mouse. It seems silly, but one of my close friends thought that his mouse was defective because the cursor would move on its own. It turns out the sensor in his fancy gaming mouse was SO sensitive, the vibrations of his computer speakers or footsteps in the room would move it around.

Wake on USB, and stop giving it coffee past 4pm.

might be your mouse, or your usb wifi, or your lan

I have not noticed any sudden moving by my mouse, but I'll disconnect it before I put computer to sleep before I go to work. If that doesn't solve it then I'll try with my usb headphones.
How do I deal with lan if that's the issue?

Go in your BIOS and set your "Wake on USB" off. Same thing for LAN if it is on. Gaming mice a super sensitive and it doesnt take much make the laser scanner activate. Better to just unplug your mouse. If you have a USB keyboard and turn off the wake on USB, then you cant hit a key to wake your computer.

I believe it's LAN that's waking up the PC. I disconnected my mouse before going to work but it woke itself up few minutes after. Then I disconnected my headphones and came home at lunch, found out that PC was on again. Then before going back to work I disconnected LAN and when I came back home the PC was still off.

I'll try turning it off via above suggestion so I don't have to go to BIOS, if it doesn't work I'll try setting it in BIOS. Thanks all smile.gif
