Computer wakes from sleep by itself and runs slow

Q: Computer wakes from sleep by itself and runs slow

I got my computer a few months ago and it was fine until early August when it started to wake from sleep automatically. I know something was happening because the processor fan speed was changing rapidly as on my computer started to sound like a vacuum cleaner. Whenever my computer goes into screensaver the same thing happens. As I was posting this the computer just turned on by itself and went into sleep mode, I'm posting this from my phone because I do not trust my computer enough to even look up anything about virus removal. I considered reformatting but I would choose not to if I don't have to. Sorry if this is confusing. PC: Windows 8 64 bit. Also norton and windows defender find no viruses when run when the other is disabled.

Preferred Solution: Computer wakes from sleep by itself and runs slow

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A while ago I had a problem with a Computer running Windows 8 Pro x64 where it would wake up very early in the morning or various times at night. It wasn't nice since the computer is in my bedroom. Eventually, a Microsoft Support person disabled the Wake Timers but that didn't help. Finally, for no reason at all--maybe it was a Windows Update (don't know) but it stopped doing it.

Recently, the computer has started to wake up on its own while in Sleep Mode, and then shut down in Hibernation Mode approximately one minute later after it has been in Sleep Mode for a while, apparently more than an hour or so. During the time the computer turns itself on, nothing is displayed on the monitor screen.

I have attached two screenshots of the last recorded issue, one showing the General tab info and the other showing the Details tab info, for your reference.

What is causing this problem?

Thanks.

Title says it all. I have searched for a while and feel like I have tried most fixes I've seen but the problem persists. Weather I manually put it into sleep or not, it goes to sleep for about a second then wakes up, same thing every time.

when I run the "powercfg lastwake" command, I get:

Wake History Count - 1
Wake History [0]
Wake Source Count - 0

but it definitely just woke up for some reason, it just doesn't want to tell me, any help is greatly appreciated

A:Computer wakes 1 second after going to sleep

Hi,

Strange, I am seeing exactly the same symptoms on my main system. I've been around the block several times in the past with S3 sleep issues, from WOL to task scheduler events, and this is something different. I've tried all the usual tricks to try to pin it down (unplug the LAN cable, check the wake_armed devices, task schedule, etc) and this one is pretty frustrating.

I'm seeing the same empty wake history after the system sleeps for one second, too.

Very little has changed on my system around the time I noticed this change in behavior last week. I sure haven't installed any new hardware, updated drivers, etc that might account for the issue.

I wonder if it could be a recent windows update? That would explain the coincidence of us both seeing the same problem at about the same time...

I'd hate to have to resort to restoring from a backup, but unless something turns up soon I may have to use that sledgehammer, at least to pin down what happened. And I'd hate to spend all that time doing that, so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm also keen to get some help.

My system is a pretty basic ASUS P8/Z68-V Pro.

Please forgive but I do not know computer lingo or much about computers at all, so be gentle.

My problem is this: When I put my computer to sleep sometimes it will wake up on its own and there is no one in the room. If it is still off when I come into the room it will turn when I turn on a small fan I have next to my desk. I do not touch anything on the computer when I do this. What's causing this? Thanks.

chances are this is caused by your mouse. a small movement even from the vibrarion of a fan can cause it to move.

My PC seems to be waking itself from sleep without a clear reason. It does not appear to be harming my computer but this interferes with some of the tasks I have scheduled (in the Task Scheduler) related to waking up from sleep and downloading files (related to my job).

When I checked the command function to ask when the last wake up was, I got the result of:

"USB\Root_HUB20\4&2bbf6f2c&0"

Does anybody known what this means or what is causing this unintended wake from sleep?? Is there something I can do to prevent this from happening or just leave it alone??

Thanks.

A:Computer wakes itself up on its own from sleep - why?

That seems to point to a device waking the pc that is attached via usb. In your power options of the mouse for instance does it say it can wake the pc, it might be to sensitive and it wakes your pc when air is blown on it even. I had this issue and unchecked this box and only wake with my keyboard. Do you have any backup software like Acronis or Macrium installed?

Hello,
I'm new here and I have a problem with Windows 7.

I cannot use the sleep function! This is is so frustrating.. I used to put my computer to sleep all the time in XP. But when I upgraded to W7 a while ago, my computer just wakes up instantly after going into sleep mode, as if I was spamming the power button.

I have tried searching for answers, and one solution I have tried was the "network card activity problem". However, it didn't work.

Could anyone please help me with this, or point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Hello,

I want my Windows 7 PC to go to sleep during the night but it keeps waking up several times a night, sometimes just seconds after powering down. I also have it set to sleep after 30 minutes but according to my system log it has gone to sleep, woken up and gone back to sleep and woken up again in less than that time..

Like today for instance it went to sleep like 10:45 and then woke up again at 11:05, then it had another wake at 11:20. I did notice one pattern in the logs that sometimes there's almost exactly 30 minutes between wakes and a few times exactly 30 minutes down to the second. Mostly it seems random though.

The wake sources are unknown and I tried disabling the mouse and network from being allowed to wake the machine.

Attached log files from event viewer.

I'm stumped, does anyone have any ideas what could be going on here?

Hi guys
My laptop has the same problem. I think it's something to do with the internet because when switch my wireless off it's going to sleep like it should be. If I'm connected to the university wireless it's waking up immediately. The same if I'm using the LAN cable. I suppose you guys will know what exactly causes it to wake up and tell me what to do so it wont be necessary always to switch wireless off when I want to put it to sleep.

Hello Pafkata, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Double check your network adapters (LAN and wireless) in Device Mangager under their "Power Management" properties tab, to make sure that it is not "Allowed to wake computer".

Hi there. I just got a new Win 8 computer. I love it, however it wakes from sleep mode every 15 minutes on the dot. It will wake for about 2 minutes than sleep again.

Is this something it should do in order to get some air flow every once in a while or can I stop it from doing this? I have searched around online and tried everything i have come across. I turned off the setting that allows programs to wake the computer, as well as made sure the ethernet connection doesn't wake it.

Any ideas? Thanks!

A:Computer wakes from sleep every 15 minutes.

Go to Power Options in the Control Panel, Change what the Power Settings Do, Change Advanced Power Settings, scroll down to Sleep and expand it, Allow Wake Timers and expand that. If the Setting says Enable, click to disable it. I believe that should take care it. If not put it back to where it was and we shall look at something else.

My laptop will start just fine, but if it goes to sleep when I try to wake it up it will crash. This is not a random issue, it happens every time the computer wakes up. When the problem first started, it would give an error box that read "dmw.exe Application Error" before it would go to the BSOD. In the last day it has skipped that text box, going straight to the BSOD. This is a new laptop, and the problem has been happening since day one. Our training facility bought two laptops, one for me and one for another instructor, and both laptops have been experiencing this issue. I have tried going to Intel and updating the latest graphics driver, as well as running a registry cleaner (I used the one that comes with the CCleaner software).

A:BSOD when computer wakes up from sleep

OK, I am still playing around, and the laptop crashed again. I had it set to go to sleep after 3 minutes of inactivity so I could see if I was making any progress or not. This time, before the BSOD popped up, there was a text box that read "AvastUI.exe Application Error". This was in the header to the box, but the main text area was blank.

When I start my computer, everything is fine. As long as I continuously use it, I have no problems. If the computer ever goes to sleep, however, I can use the mouse or keyboard to wake it up, but I cannot actually use anything. Even CTRL-ALT-DELETE doesn't work. If I boot my PC into Linux, I don't encounter the problem. 
 
I have run a Virus Scan and Malware scan and found nothing.

I've got a pretty regular and predictable usage pattern with my computer - quick logon in the morning to check emails, go to work, use computer at night, restart before bed.

The computer is set to sleep after three hours of inactivity. So in the morning it will be sleeping, then when I get home from work same thing. Sometimes not; never figured what wakes the computer, but 90% of the time, that's how that works - it sleeps after three hours, and stays sleeping for several hours.

However, this week I noticed that the computer seemingly never sleeps. It's always on when I come by it, including in the morning, and when I get home from work.

Checked the system log in the event viewer for events 1 (wakeup) and 42 (sleep), and I noticed that, into the morning of 9/16, the normal pattern of several hours of sleep was adhered to. Since 9/16 though, every sleep period lasts about 2 1/2 minutes. That is, it goes to sleep (event 42), and then within 2-3 minutes, it will wake up (event 1).

There have been no Windows updates in that time that would affect this. Definition updates for Windows Defender on 9/18 and 9/21, and KB2744842 (security update for IE 9 on x64 systems) on 9/22, but nothing happened, including no new software installations, on 9/15 or 9/16.

So why is my computer suddenly waking from sleep almost immediately?

Hello 450125,

I have a rather confusing problem with my newly built PC. The other day I was using my computer and it randomly shutdown on me without warning. I tried to turn it back on but the fans would only start to spin up but it wouldn't post. I let it sit for an hour and everything seemed fine. Then it happened again yesterday. This time I took notice of every detail. The computer seemed pretty hot. I did some testing and I learned that the CPU fan isn't turning on after I take the computer out of sleep mode. I tried all the settings in the BIOS and checked connections but it persists. I also uninstalled all the programs on my system that have fan controllers built in and tried swapping PSUs. Sleep mode is currently disabled. Has anyone ever seen this before? I think that the fan isn't getting enough voltage to get going because it starts to spin and quits about 50%. Sometimes it turns on sometimes nothing. The scary thing is my motherboard didn't give me any warning about the temps and for some reason my computer doesn't report the correct temps in any of my utilities. Bad sensors? Bug in BIOS? I don't know what else to check. Thanks

Relevant information up front;


Desktop PC, Windows 7 Professional x64

Custom built PC, had it for about... 2-3 years now. Bought retail version Windows 7 and installed on construction, have not reformatted or any such thing since.

Intel Core i5-4430 CPU @ 3.00GHz 4 Core
AMD Radeon R9 280X, Sapphire GPU
MSI MS-7821 Motherboard
500W Bronze Power Supply (Not entirely sure of brand)
2TB Hard-drive split into 3 non-equal partitions.

? System Manufacturer
? Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom) -- Since it's custom built, I don't think either of these apply?


So, the issue at hand. I've usually let my computer go into sleep mode, rather than shut it off entirely- I normally only shut it off for updates or when I am away for long periods of time.

Lately, randomly, when powering back up from sleep mode, the computer will BSOD. Sometimes it is very quickly after the system booting up, other times it takes about a minute. It's been happening for about a week and a few days more regularly.

Other than that, I haven't been having any issues aside from some occasional artifacting, which is due to the Sapphire I have having been previously overclocked before it was given to me.

A:BSOD when computer wakes from Sleep Mode

Not sure if this was from the Verifier or not (following step 6, ran the Driver Verifier), but I rebooted and after about 5-10 minutes both of my screens became covered in - hard to describe, but a kind of hyper-stretched image? And the audio cut out. While I was writing this actually, it happened again.

I'm assuming now, as I write this in safe mode, that this is due to the verifier. The problem is that neither of these crashes have resulted in a BSOD, nor have they provided a mini-dump for me.

I'm going to try and shut off the Verifier, and see if that at least stops me crashing like this.

My big issue is this. After I wake the computer up from sleep. I takes a while for the Internet to be back up and running. My father who recently stayed with me while he was on vacation. Thinks it's because I run Firefox. He tells me this will "never" happen with Internet Explorer. I honestly think Microsoft raised him too well. LOL. I tell him it does not matter what browser you use its still the same issue. But he insists he is right. Oh well what can you do with a 73 year old man.

Is there a setting that I need to "tweak"? I look over at the taskbar when it wakes up it has a red symbol of some kind on the Network connection, then an exclamation mark and finally a global icon. By the way I am running Qwest DSL modem which is hooked up to my Linksys WRT 160N router. The router also connects to my laptop via CAT5e cable.

I've been noticing that my computer is randomly snapping out of sleep mode after a few hours.

I'm positive that I'm not bumping into the mouse or anything to accidentally wake it as I make sure to turn my wireless mouse off once I've finished a session on the computer. and often times the computer will wake in the middle of the night. I will select sleep mode before going to bed and when I wake up it will be running like normal, I'm really not sure what is causing this problem so if anyone has any suggestions that would be great.

A:Computer randomly wakes from sleep mode

Click the start orb and type device manager. When it shows up in the search results, press Enter.Locate your network adapters and double-click on the first one. Go to the Advanced tab. Scroll through the list and look for any "Wake on..." or "WOL" entries. Make sure they are disabled.Do this for each network adapter.Let us know if anything changes.

Hello mate I am assuming you have done these
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Disk Check < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

Now starting the machine are you leaving it in sleep mode because it takes a long time to get to the desktop??

Bascially it has started happenening where by I dont even tell the computer to wake, it just does after a set amount of time.

However the screen is totally black, fans spinning all lights on doing the their thing but totally unresponsive. I have to hold down the power button to restart the computer.

Funny thing is when I do all of my tabs, apps, games etc are open exactly where I left off after I turned off the machine.

Also my machine has NO trouble at all turning on/restarting from a cold boot.

Any help would be great, been bugging me for ages, I tried turning off hibernation etc but then I just lose the ability to continue on where I left off so im guessing it has to do with sleep.

Occasionaly if I pop it into sleep when I come back (maybe over an hour or more) it's already 'awake' into the black screen. Like something woke it up but the same problem of nothing happening is still there

Hello,

I am using the realtek onboard sound that came with my Gigabyte MB. Sometimes when I wake the computer up, it says that I disconnected the sound. However the speakers are still connected. Even if I plug in a set of headphones that I know work, the system will not recognize them. If I restart the PC the speakers are found again(it doesn't state this, I just have the sound back).

I have tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them. I downloaded the newest drivers from Gigabytes website and it still has the same issue.

By the way I am just using analog speakers.

Thanks
Justin

A:No sound after computer wakes up from sleep mode - Win7

I think one the "optional" Windows-7 updates is supposed to fix that.

I don't lose sound but if I let this PC go into sleep more I get audio that is sometimes garbled so I just shut of the monitors and drives.

My network card wakes my computer from sleep mode. I have disabled all of the wake on lan options for it under device manager -> network card. I also disabled wake timers for sleep mode under advanced power options. Before I did both of those things it would wake immediately after entering sleep mode. Now it wakes after about 30 seconds. Any suggestions?

You could use any of the options in the tutorial below to hopefully prevent this device from being able to wake the computer.

My Computer wakes up from sleep only when I press the power button but not a button from my keyboard. It is still functional and I can use my computer but I would like to use the keyboard to wake up my computer. It is home built and Windows 7. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome fr4mindia.

My suggestion is to look in your BIOS to see if there is a setting to allow "Wake on Keyboard".

My current Win 7 installation was installed in July, 2013. From the time I installed it, I would put it into sleep mode by going to Start > Shut Down "arrow", and selecting Sleep every night. It would go to sleep and the power LED would flash. I would then press the power button the next day and it would wake up.

This worked perfectly until the last week or so. Now when I press the power button the power LED continues to flash for about 3 seconds, and then the light goes out. The only way I can get it to turn on is to press the power switch on the power supply to the off position, leave it off for a few seconds, flip it back to the on position, and then press the power button on the front.

When the computer comes back from this state, it acts like it's turning on from being fully turned off (I see the BIOS screen, etc.), but all the stuff I had open are still there. I guess this is like coming back from hibernation?

I don't know what happened to cause this. I have made no changes to the power configuration, no hardware changes, no driver updates. Maybe it was a Windows update that caused it?

How can I make the power button wake up the computer like it used to?

Thanks!

Hi,I wondered if someone could help me...
 
When my laptop wakes up from being on standby I get 14-20 alerts for various URL:Mal in  system32/svchost.exe. I ran avast and it found 36 issues which it 'fixed', althought none of these appeared to be the URL:Mal that pops up.  I have also run Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, junkyard, hitman and adw cleaner. When these were run initially they found a few bits and then cleaned them but the issues continue. Any help would be amazing!ThanksP

Update: Disable Windows Media Center in the "Turn Windows Features On/Of Manager"
Fixed it! (Be sure to reboot when it asks)

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to these forums so please forgive if this is in the wrong place. I was unsure if this fell in another category, please feel free to move it.

Ok... Here's my issue, my laptop has started to randomly waking from sleep every morning at 7:04:52. I have walked the dirt path of Google searching for answers and have tried everything I could possibly find that
is even REMOTELY related to my problem.

Nothing on my Laptop has changed, and it has just started this problem. It's VERY annoying and I'm at my whits end trying to find out what's causing it.

Here's what I've tried/tweaked/confirmed:

- Confirmed that Wake Timers are Disabled - Fought with this on other various machines, first thing I checked.
- Ethernet Wake on LAN is Disabled (Laptop is only ever on WiFi Anyway)
- Wireless Adapter's "Allow Device to Wake this computer..." is also disabled and always has been.
- Windows Media Center's Update Service is disabled since I do not use WMC...
- Went into the Command Prompt and ran "powercfg -lastwake" and was told it was the "ACPI Lid" which is what I was also told in Event Viewer for each (event) occasion that this has happened.
- I've also checked to see if it was Windows Update, but it's settings have never changed and if it was WU it would wake up at 3 am instead...
- Checked to see wha... Read more

Hi,
Every time I turn the computer from sleep i get the blue screen, and it reboots. But if I shutdown works fine. I have tried cleaning my registry, updating windows, and have norton but im sure its not the drivers because the computer was bought in 2012. I hope I attached the right files containing my drivers, computer specs, and bsod errors.
Thank you

Hi All,
I have two systems a N650SLI-DS4 and a GA-EP35-DS3L hooked up to a Trednet KVM switch. If I put the GA-EP35-DS3L to sleep and switch to the N650SLI-DS4, the GA-EP35-DS3L system wakes up. The only way I have been able to keep it in sleep is if I hold the switch for the N650SLI-DS4 while pressing the sleep button and then switching to the N650SLI-DS4 immediately the GA-EP35-DS3L won't turn on until I press the power button. Now the N650SLI-DS4 doesn't have the problem. I went into the BIOS and disabled the keyboard and mouse wakeup but don't know what else to check. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to check next?

This is what happened to me for the past few years. This week I just replaced my N650SLI-DS4 with an ASUS P8Z77-V LK board. The Asus also does NOT show the same issue that the GA-EP35-DS3L has. Could this just be an issue with the power supply?

Thanks,

A:GA-EP35-DS3L sleep and KVM switch wakes comp from sleep

npolite, it could be that you have "wake on lan" set on in your network card.
