I have found out what is waking my computer up 1 minute after I click sleep. My Microsoft dual receiver wireless keyboard (mouse and keyboard center) in device manager is the culprit, according to powercfg devicequery wake_armed.

If I uninstall it, my computer sleeps like a baby, but then I have no keyboard. Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this? I can disable it completely but that doesn't work. only uninstall gets my rig sleeping peacefully.

Try this: go to Control Panel > Power Options > Under your preferred plan click on Change Plan Settings > Then on Change Advanced Power Settings > Go down the list to SLEEP and Disable "Allow Wake Timers". This May work or not.


Change Advanced Power Settings, USB settings: disable "allow to wake" for the mouse and keyboard.
