Hello Community,

Noticed since last week that "Sleep" and "Hibernate" wake after one minute.
Only thing I did last week was upgrade NIS v20 - v21 & installed ghostery

The wake after one minute happens mid session (after 1/2 hour approx) / post session (after my box has been on all day)
From a hard shut down / pwr on. Sleep and Hibernate work immediately after pwr on. 

Box will stay "Sleep" or "Hibernate" until I wake.
CMD prompt only reports power on?
C:\Users\BJMS>powercfg -lastwake
Wake History Count - 1
Wake History [0]
  Wake Source Count - 1
  Wake Source [0]
    Type: Fixed Feature

Self wake (box self wakes after one minute) from "Sleep" mid session / post session.

Usually, until last week. Used "Sleep" mode most of the time and reboot/hard shut down once a week.

Comments how to restore "Sleep" / "Hibernate" to normal functionality.

Otherwise box behaves as before and am happy with NIS v21 & ghostery
Thanks

Is your system being 'woken' to run a background full system scan (usually an Idle Mode trigger) by Norton?  If so, check the scan logs to see if it is active for a full system idle scan (may only give you started times but no ending time yet).  If you suspect this is the case, then uninstall and reinstall NIS 21 ( you can check Norton's User forum for the location of the Norton RNR tool [Remove and Reinstall] ).

My system wakes one minute after sleep. I can duplicate this annomoly all day long.  Norton Idle Mode scans do not wake system from sleep.

Checked the Norton scan logs. Not related.  Wish system annomoly was related to Norton.  It would be easy to employ NRnR tool.

Thanks for your interest.
