Windows 10 PC randomly wakes up from sleep mode

Copper Contributor

My desktop PC randomly wakes up from sleep mode at random times. I haven't noticed a pattern to this. It has been an ongoing issue for many months, so I don't think it has anything to do with the Windows version. The hardware specs are:


  • Intel Core i7 7700K

  • Gigabyte Z170X G1 Gaming Motherboard

  • 16GB Corsair 2400MHz RAM

  • Nvidia GTX 970

  • 120GB Sandisk Boot SSD

  • 120GB Apacer SSD

  • 1TB Seagate HDD

  • 500GB WD HDD

  • Windows 10 Home Version 20H2

I have a desktop lamp plugged in that remains on 24/7, which also has an ambient light sensor built in. I have RGB peripherals, as well as a Logitech G25 racing wheel that also remains plugged in 24/7, but this has a seperate power cable. Besides that, its a generic Amazon webcam and 2 HDMI monitors.


Any help is appreciated as this is really starting to get annoying.
