    Was running into the same previously. Putting my desktop to sleep only to find it waking up in the middle of the night, and for some reason not going back to sleep afterwards. I believe the solution for me previously was disabling wake timers. Hasn’t been an issue since. However this is a much larger issue on things like laptops where preventing sleep while in a backpack could lead to excessive heat generation. Infuriating that it’s forced by default

      And don’t sleep or close the lid with power connected. It won’t realise it’s on battery once it’s asleep. Hence battery drain.

      I disabled wake timers, wake on lan, and peripherals waking from sleep. It worked for a bit until an update completely destroyed my computers ability to sleep at all. The screens would shut off but nothing else. Still running, still logged in.

      Enabled hibernation because fuck you windows.

        My pc randomly wakes up from hibernation.
        I hate finding it on in the morning.

        The lazy workaround is to hibernate, then wake it, then shut it on the boot screen. That way it stays off, but I still get to restore my session.

        I’ve tried more reasonable solutions but had no luck, and am tired.

      Mine also did that, but with the added ‘benefit’ of forgetting how to turn on my graphics card when it did had to wake up at some point without my input.

      Fun times…

      Here I was blaming the cat for using my computer at night

      That’s different: probably due to Windows Update, but there are other things that can set wake timers to do various things at night. For some genius reason they never go back to sleep.

      Desktops typically don’t support modern/connected/s0 standby. Wake timers is something different designed to wake a machine up from classic S3 sleep.
