One guest asked that he turned his computer off by putting it into hibernating state and he was sure that the computer went into hibernation. He was using a desktop and when he came back after several hours, he found his computer turned on in locked state where computer logon screen was up and asking for password.
I work at my desktop at home and there are always opened documents and I don’t like to completely shutdown my PC. Due to power failure problem in our area I put my computer in hibernating state and leave it. If a computer is in hibernating state, it should not be turning on unless it is told to do so by pressing start button, but I have observed that if I leave my PC turned on for several hours, then it resumes back automatically and wakes up from hibernation automatically. What is happening? How I can stop PC to wake up automatically from sleep? If it wakes up automatically and then power goes down, I lose my unsaved data. Please suggest some solution.
- Go to Control Panel
Press Windows key and R to launch command prompt and type ‘control panel’, hit enter
- Go to ‘Power Options’
- Hit ‘change plan settings’
- Hit the ‘change advanced power settings’
- Expand sleep option
- Under sleep, expand ‘allow wake timers’
- Click settings and choose ‘disable’
Now your computer should not wake up automatically.
