Stop Computer from Waking Up Automatically from Hibernation

0

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’

That’s it

Now your computer should not wake up automatically.
