My PC resumes at 8:30 when it's in standby mode, and I would like to check if there is an RTC alarm that causes it. How can I view currently set alarms in Windows?

Try checking Windows 7's Task Scheduler in Control Panel. There might be a scheduled task in there waking up your computer. Also, check your power management settings in your BIOS in case a manual RTC alarm has been set.

To Run Task Scheduler using the Windows interface

  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Click Control Panel.
  3. Click System and Maintenance.
  4. Click Administrative Tools.
  5. Double-click Task Scheduler.
