Otherwise, they should find one asap. I installed it and it works! I tried seeing if it was only giving me issues when I was online, but it was still going. Note, mine was actually unchecked, but it was recommended to check it, click ok, then open it up again and uncheck it. Recently, we released a hot fix, which addresses this issue. Right-click on the service and select Properties. I turned off the automatic updates and rebooted, but it has not helped.
Make it so that no account has write access, not even your own you can always change permissions later if you need to. Thanks for the posts here. I check all settings as suggested by Martin and the only thing still on the list as on are the optional updates which I already installed with the exception of the stupid Bing Bar… I hate any toolbar. Though I wish there was an ignore or opt out option for some of those optional updates so it never wakes the computer again. I even talked to the fine folks at Microsoft, but they were not any help at the top of the year. With Process Explorer you can. Then reopen it to update it.
Thank goodness for Forums like these! To do this click on the button labeled Show All Processes. It stopped for a little while at least that's what it seemed, must have been coincidence because now its happening again. Not only that, after it would shut down, it would have a hard time starting back up when pressing the power button. It can happen that the diagnostic programs return no sources at all, or only unknown sources. From doing research, many suggested to look at the power settings.
After many frustrating days recently fighting this problem including letting the laptop sit thre for 20-30 minutes waiting for the svchost to get done whatver it was doing. I'm not sure why Windows makes you jump through so many hoops just to fix the power settings. But this doesn't fix it for me. I don't think I changed it to be a one-time task, but that's what it is right now and I'm not sure if Windows Update modifies the trigger task when it decides it needs to do a reboot or if it should be running every day just in case it needs a reboot. I had to back this out because it made it worse. Recently I installed the Creators Update for Windows 10 and after the installation I noticed the computer would randomly boot up by itself while in sleep mode and then go into shutdown. If you are unsure what a particular service does and need help, feel free to ask any question you may have in of our Windows.
In the results, right click on shell and select Properties. Closest thing I found was to disable automatic maintenance, but from my settings I only have something to change the time, not disable it. There are no unknown or unworkable devices listed in the device manager. Maybe someone has a better idea. Next to each Service Host row process will be a little arrow.
By the way Leo, I truly truly miss the North West!! However, from time to time you might still get wake surprises. Wow, seriously, I am so happy for this information. I finally figured out what was causing mine to wake up. I found another solution later. Step 5: Check the Group Policy just to be completely sure Right-click your Start menu and select 'Run'. Various Windows faculties will use different profiles; this improves your chances of not being woken up.
Then, you may receive an error message in the svchost. It could be a problem for folks not already behind a firewall. It's a feature I use often but it must be brought into line, as its default behaviour is far too overzealous. Step 1: Disable wake timers for all power profiles Lazy tech-bloggers would have you believe this is the end of your search. Since then I have been going to Windows Updates to check for updates. I also tried doing a system restore without success. Note that while it may reveal information to you, it is not always the case.
Problem is now gone, and internet access is fully functional. If you are concerned with what is running under these processes, simply use the steps described above to examine their services. And what can you do about it? But then another app would, after a few minutes, move in and take the place of those two. Right-click on the device and click Properties: 3. It may reveal what woke the computer. Then I read these hints, downloaded adaware and ran it, and there has been no problem since.
After installing Norton 360, my problem still existed. If you want to see the new changes are working correctly, temporarily from the Task Scheduler, under Actions, click Enable All Tasks History. Typing powercfg -energy will generate essentially a system health report for power efficiency. I wish I could offer more help but I don't even know where to start. Running every 5 minutes is probably total overkill, but it should at least mean that whenever Windows decides it wants to re-allow the computer to wake up, the task will be disabled so it won't even run.
