I'm coming to you guys as a last resort. I recently upgraded my PC to windows 8.1 from a ~2 month old install of windows 8. On windows 8, PC slept predictably when set to 30 min. I had two "powercfg /requestsoverrides" set via command line to ensure that this happened, however. Now, upon upgrading, PC will not sleep predictably when set to an idle interval of 30 min., even if "powercfg /requests" shows "none." for every category. PC will sleep automatically if power options are: display shutoff set to 1 min, and sleep PC set to 2 or 3 min; OR if ethernet cable is unplugged from computer (with display/sleep set to 5/15 min). Disabling IPv6 and the Homegroup fix, both mentioned in this thread, did not work: http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2329266
. Virus scans via windows defender and malwarebytes are negative, all drivers are up to date, and PC sleeps fine manually.
Do you all have any advice for me? I really just want to make sure that if computer wakes up due to scheduled tasks (or my cat), that it will be able to fall back asleep.
