    Another 24 hours, and all is still good. The only reason I use Sleep is because it's so quick to both turn off, and turn on, just a few seconds. To restart from scratch takes some minutes. Thanks to...

    Hi again Browni. Didn't work. It's coming on and staying on again. Lol So I'm going to have another look in the Scheduled Tasks folder, see if anything has changed. Nope, doesn't appear to be .

    It was on Sleep for a couple of hours earlier today, and didn't misbehave, so maybe your solution has fixed it, many thanks Browni. Won't know for sure for another 24 Hours. Cheers :)

    Thank you Browni. Unfortunately Allow to bring out of Standby is already unticked. However, Allow to turn off to save power is ticked, so I shall untick that too. Cheers.
