My computer with Windows 8 (x64) won't go to sleep. After I tell the computer to go to sleep the screen fades to black as expected, but just when the computer should "turn off", the fans speed up (as on a cold boot) and shows me my lock screen, as if I was waking it.
As far as I know this have started happening after I installed the free Media Center add-on that Microsoft offered me.
Here's some powercfg that I just fetched after trying to make the computer sleep:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg /lastwake Wake History Count - 1 Wake History  Wake Source Count - 0 C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg /requests DISPLAY: None. SYSTEM: [DRIVER] \FileSystem\srvnet An active remote client has recently sent requests to this machine. AWAYMODE: None. EXECUTION: None. PERFBOOST: None. FULLSCREENVIDEO: None.
I guess it is the
An active remote client has recently sent requests to this machine. that is causing the trouble.
Here is what I've tried:
- Turning off "Allow hybrid sleep" under Power Options.
- Disabling the Media Center in "Windows Features".
- Updating the network adapter drivers.
- Removed everything except my keyboard with the
Powercfg -devicequery wake_armedcommand.
- Tried using
powercfg -requestsoverride driver \filesystem\srvnet system(what does this command do?)
How do I continue from here? I've read that blocking media streaming might help, but I can't find it on Windows 8.
