Laptop randomy starts while hibernating
« on: September 06, 2010, 05:12:11 pm »

Just got myself a sony vaio eb2z0e - runs windows 7.

When I put the laptop into hibernate sometimes I wake up in the mornign and find it is running. Its happened several times now and I want to get it sorted asap so if it is a probelm hardware wise I can get a refund before my 28 days are up.

Ive done all sorts, updated the BIOS, fully updated windows, disabled any scheduled tasks etc.

Any ideas? Can a scheduled update wake a PC from hibernation? Ive just disabled the media center update so hopefully this may cure it.

You just using the touchpad or you got a mouse connected?

My main pc does the same unless i turn the mouse on its side so it doesn't register movement at all

Nothing is plugged in USB ports, just using my touchpad as a mouse. It deffinately goes into hibernation - then i close the lid and dont touch it till morning. If i leave it plugged in it turns on and is on in the morning, if I leave it unplugged it turns on and runs the battery down as its dead in the morning. Battery isnt faulty as if I shut down fully and unplug it holds charge. In BIOS ive disabled wake on LAN also  :wtf

It could also be Window's Updates which might be set to check at 3 am or something. Mine kept turning itself on and that was the reason

Well it wasnt on this morning so looks like disabling the 'allow wake timers' sorted it. Cheers guys.
