Sleep Mode on Windows 10

HP Recommended
Envy - 750-514
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I put my computer in Sleep Mode any time that I finished with it.   Last nite in the middle of the nite, I heard my computer power up on its own.  When I checked on it, the power lite was on "on" and it was running.  I turned on the monitor to see what it was running but only got a blank screen saying no computer was connected.  In less than a minute from when I heard it power up, it went back into sleep mode with the power lite flashing.   I know it was in power mode before I heard it power up because I came by the computer room a few hours earlier and the power lite was flashing in the dark room.

 

Is this normal when a computer is in sleep mode and what was it doing?

It is pretty normal and probably not hurting anything, but if you're concerned about it and want to find out what's waking your computer (and then potentially disable it if possible/if you want), you can use the steps in this Lifehacker article: https://lifehacker.com/how-find-out-what-woke-up-your-computer-last-1550549116
