Hey Guys, Starting yesterday my computer keeps wakeing up by it self. I thought and changed the batteries in my keyboard and mouse, that wasn't it. Any ideas. Thanks in advance for any input. Stan(Bikrdad) :think:

Open a command prompt and run:

powercfg –lastwake

Then, in device manager, open the device properties, and and disable it from waking the PC under power options.

Hey Rich , In command prompt, I get a messsage that powercfg is not reconized as an internalor external command,operable program or batch file. Also in device manager, I don't see device properties. I tried to copy and paste the command prompt but it wouldn't do it. This is crazy, I have computer set to sleep after 3min, which it does than about 5 min later it cycles back on than off in 3min. Again thanks for your help. Stan(Bikrdad)
