A number of factors can cause your PC to wake up randomly. It could be caused by power settings, a BIOS setting, apps or services running in the background, network settings, a faulty power supply, a defective hardware component, or a virus or malware infection. To determine the root cause of the issue, please try the following:
1. Check your power settings:
In the Control Panel, go to Power Options and make sure that the sleep settings are configure to put your PC to sleep and wake it up after the designated amount of time.
2. Check the BIOS settings:
Restart your PC, then enter your BIOS. Look for any settings that might indicate that your PC is being set to wake up at certain times.
3. Check for apps or services running in the background:
Open Task Manager, then switch to the Services tab. Look for any apps or services that might be running in the background that could be causing your PC to wake up.
4. Check your network settings:
In the Control Panel, go to Network and Sharing Center and check Network Adapters. Make sure the setting for Wake on LAN is disabled.
5. Check the power supply:
It is possible that a faulty power supply is causing your PC to wake up randomly. To test this, you can use a different power supply to see if the issue persists.
6. Check for a defective hardware component:
Check for any defective components, such as a hard drive, RAM, or other pieces of hardware. Try testing these components in another PC, if possible, to see if the issue persists.
7. Check for a virus or malware:
If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it is possible that your PC is infected with a virus or malware. Use anti-virus software to scan and clean your system, then see if the issue still persists.
