    Default Sleep mode

    PC doesn't stay in sleep mode. Have regulated power options to comply i.e 'put the computer to sleep in 15 minutes, hybrid sleep off, never hibernate and disable wake timers'. Please advise.

    Thank you norco1.

    C:\Users\Norman>powercfg -lastwake
    Wake History Count - 0

    The test above needs to be performed as soon as the computer wakes. Not after some time has passed or if you wake it on purpose or the wake count will be "0" as displayed above.

    Below you will find an excellent tutorial for troubleshooting. Please read thoroughly and if the answer to why your computer wakes on it's own is found by executing one of the options in the tutorial, please let me know which option worked for you.
