My desktop computer wakes everyday at 9 AM and I can't figure out how to stop that. When I try the powercfg command, it doesn't say what woke my computer. I looked through all of the Task Scheduler entries and didn't find one that was enabled to wake the computer. Any ideas?
Solved! Go to Solution.

See if there is a BIOS setting to power on your PC every day at 09:00.
On my HP 8200 elite, there is under the power options.
I can elect to turn my PC on at any time on any day I want.
If there is, just disable that setting like I did.

Thanks for your input. I checked my BIOS and there was nothing in there about wakeup; however, I have found the solution for my problem: it was under the "power management" tab for my ethernet network card (in Device Manager). Oddly enough, even though "allow to wake my computer" was not selected, when I selected that and checked the box under it saying "only management stations .....", the problem went away. Apparently another one of those Microsoft ideosyncracies.
