I've recently started using an Android app to trigger wake-on-lan for my Windows 10 desktop PC. I didn't need to configure anything for this to work on the network card, Windows or BIOS. Problem is, if I wake the PC (from a shutdown state) with the app (I've tried multiple apps), when I go to shut it down within Windows, it will start straight back up again. It will then shutdown correctly. Any thoughts on where to begin troubleshooting this?

    Not too sure if this would be relevant but just check if Fast Boot/Fast Startup is enabled in BIOS/UEFI and/or in the Windows 10 Control Panel Power Options. Try disabling this feature at both places and check again. Also what if you use the command line shurdown option say shutdown /s /f ? – patkim Feb 14 at 21:21
  • Disabling Fast Boot in Windows was enough to make this work, thanks! If you want to post as an answer I can mark it as the solution. – SeeNoWeevil Feb 18 at 15:48
