When I shut down my PC I have to remember to switch it off at the power socket. If I forget, it wakes up in the early hours of the morning.The PC is an Advent 3216 running Windows XP. There are no tasks scheduled.How I can I make it have a good nights rest ?
Big sledgehammer! :-))
After using the Sledgehammer! Go to start/Control panel/performance and maintenance/Power options, then the advanced tab. Click on, "When I click the power button on my computer" and make sure that "Shut down" is selected in the window. j.
Try checking the power options in the BIOS - I heard somewhere that having them set incorrectly could wake up your PC unexpectedly.
Djohn - yes it is set to shutdown.Worm of Doom - do you know what they should be set to ?(Just realised I have posted this in the consumerwatch !)
I had a look at some of the current BIOS settings which are as follows:Sleep State - S3(STR)Suspend Mode - DisabledHDD Power Down - DisabledWake Up on PME - EnabledWake Up on ring - EnabledDo any of these need to be changed ?
It is possible that such routine checks are waking you PC up.
Wake up on Ring and Wake up on PME should be disabled. They allow various external events, such as the telephone ringing, to wake the PC up.Sometimes these are susceptible to electrical "noise" - ie some noise/clicks on the phone line may trigger the Wake up on Ring function.
Many thanks. I will reset them and see what happens.
I've just had a look at my BIOS and it is as DieSse suggestWake Up on PME = DisabledWake Up on ring= DisabledRegards. j.
