Hi I get a message on shutting down- Rtls5Wake what is this and is it something I need to worry about? I just click shutdown anyway. Is there a way to remove it if it would be best to do so. Regards Addy5

@Addy5 

RtlS5Wake.exe is a  process in Windows Task Manager. The process known as Realtek WOWL Utility belongs to software REALTEK Wireless LAN Driver or Realtek WOWL Utility by Realtek (www.realtek.com).

 

 RtlS5Wake.exe is not essential for the Windows OS and causes relatively few problems.
