I want wake from lan enabled for Ethernet (so I can access remotely without having to send a magic packet). With this configured in Windows 10, my computer sometimes wakes up every 20 - 40 minutes and then just stays awake. (There have been weeks when this doesn't happen...) I'd like to identify what port / program is getting accessed. Is there a way to debug the wake up event?

Here's powercfg lastwake information:

powercfg -lastwake
Wake History Count - 1
Wake History [0]
  Wake Source Count - 1
  Wake Source [0]
    Type: Device
    Instance Path: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503&SUBSYS_E0001458&REV_04\3&11583659&0&C8
    Friendly Name: Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection

  • Wake source is Ethernet. Not sure why Ethernet is waking the system. – nachum Jan 27 '18 at 16:29
  • @nachum It could be any other device on your network sending an arp request. – DavidPostill Jan 27 '18 at 18:16
  • @DavidPostill is there a way to discover what device? – nachum Jan 27 '18 at 19:26
  • You could use wireshark to monitor network traffic ... – DavidPostill Jan 27 '18 at 20:16
