This question already has an answer here:

I'm not going crazy or anything but after I hibernate my PC it just decides to turn back on again without me doing anything. I have checked my BIOS and it shows nothing that will turn it back on.

Any suggestions on what I should check?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Open start > run > cmd and type (or type cmd directly from search): powercfg /lastwake
This will show you from what was the computer waked. If it was a device, type: powercfg –devicequery [device]. The device will show at the bottom of the results from the first command.

I'm assuming you don't have any peripheral connected...

  • @Moab yes I did this and found out what was turning it back on. I've fixed it now – E2Busy Jul 4 '15 at 9:11
