    Can anyone tell me why my Vista home basic wakes up from sleep after just a few minutes. It doesn't happen all the time, but most of the time. It's on a regular computer, not a laptop.

    Some of these commands may be of assistance in tracking sleep relatred PC issues down...

    Sleepmode troubleshooters may provide information on what device is keeping your os from sleeping soundly:
    powercfg -ENERGY
    (Evaluation of energy efficiency and errors)
    powercfg lastwake
    (what had Waken Up Windows Last)
    powercfg -a
    (Checks available sleep states for your computer)
    powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
    (List devices that can wake up your computer)
    powercfg -devicedisablewake "exact name of device"
    powercfg -deviceenablewake "exact name of device"
    (disable and re-enable listed device: Respectively)

    Copy and past the above in an elevated command prompt.

    The above info has been provided by the Vista Forums

    Check your power settings. Right click on desktop>properties>screensaver>change power settings, then click the setting thats active. My PC never sleeps or hibernates and is 'on' 24/7.
