Windows 7 wakes by its self

When ever i turn my PC to sleep over night it wakes from sleep at 3:45AM and stays on i did the 'powercfg - lastwake' and this is what i got [SERVICE] /Device/Harddiskvolume1/Windows/System32/svchost.exe (wuauserv)

I ran task scheduler and no programs start at that time.

Please Help! this is the only problem with my PC so i want no errors

    sounds like your automatic updates is set for updates at 3-45am

    go to

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Update\Change settings

    and change it to a time to suit you

    +1+1.....because:

    SCVHOST is for services that run via DLLs therefore (WUAUSERV) is the update service.
  3. Ok. the windows 7 update was set for 3:00am which fits the description i set it to manual install. Ill post tomorrow to see if its fixed.

    Thank you for the help.
  4. i think 3am is the default setting for some weird reason

    you could test it by changing time on the pc to 2.59am then put it to sleep and see if it wakes up in 1 minute
  5. Ok, My PC was OFF all night in was the windows update. Thank you for everyone's help
  6. you are welcome :D
