logontype 5 is a service attempting to create a logon to the machine.
ORACLE$ is the username.

logontype 7 is unlock attempt to unlock the workstation
username =Malael domain=Oracle

guess: Someone setup oracle server service with the wrong username/password for the service? or has it changed? Second one kind of looks like someone entered in the wrong password to unlock a idle machine.

-was the machine even asleep?
check:

powercfg.exe /energy (look at the html report if /lastwake was not helpful)

in windows power shell
Get-ScheduledTask
Will dump the entire list of scheduled task, you will not have to hunt to find them.

this is the link to the power report "file:///C:/Users/Malael/energy-report.html"

Oracle is my computers name Malael is my username, the first report that i post from the event viewer is me logging off, the other two are what comes immediately after the pc logs on by itself.

and i keep reading your post and have no idea what it is that you are saying?

im trying to figure out why is it that my pc keeps waking up when i have everything disabled i even have the option in the power to not wake on scheduled events =/

-try starting a command shell (cmd.exe) in admin mode
run
powercfg.exe -devicequery wake_armed
this should dump the currently possible hardware wake methods
then you can try to disable devices wake function using powercfg.exe

for example: if the list has
Logitech HID-compliant Cordless Mouse
you could run
powercfg.exe -devicedisablewake "Logitech HID-compliant Cordless Mouse"
just put the item in quotes.
and do it for anything on the list you don't want to wake the computer.
this should work for items that don't have proper properties settings in control panel.


-if the device wake will not turn on or off sometimes you have to get a better driver.

- Sorry, about Get-ScheduledTask it is included by default in windows 8 powershell. It must have been in a command applet for windows7.
- take a look at your energy-report.html using your browser. It will indicated common problems. like computer not going to sleep because media center is on waiting to share media. Or old drivers that refuse to enter sleep mode
- here are some other things to check
- Network adapter settings, could have WOL wake on LAN set and no magic packet requirement.
- Network printer trying to talk to your computer and wakes it up via WOL
- Service like media center streaming blocks sleep mode.
- task scheduled, even the normal tasks like diagnostic, and update tasks that missed running can wake your computer.
- Sporadic events on USB can wake your computer, stuck keyboard, I have seen a
Bluetooth headphone wake my computer when I walked in range with of my Bluetooth USB receiver.
- I have seen a low battery in a USB device wake a computer (the connection disconnects for a moment, and reconnects and that reconnection wakes the computer)


best to look at the reports from various powercfg.exe options
powercfg.exe /energy
powercfg.exe /lastwake
powercfg.exe /requests
sometimes help.

if all else fails you just have to start to disable wake on your power aware devices until you find what wakes your computer. Or, unplug them until you figure out what is the cause.
unplug network cable to show it is not a WOL event,
unplug all external USB devices to show it is not a USB event

sometime a computer will have BIOS setting to wake the computer, be sure to turn these off unless you know want to them (keyboard space to wake for example is the one I use, I turn all the other BIOS wake settings off)
I turn off waking up via FAX, and RTC (real time clock), PCI bus, ...

your WakeSourceType was 0 that would give a clue but I don't know what the types for that are.

i figured it out it could be one of two things actually, i set my computer for programs to ask for permission before doing anything, and then i went into bios and and disable the usb "stay powered on during sleep option" EuP thing.

i believe it was either a program running in the background out of the hundreds i have that wasnt coming up in anything and that now that it needs permission it cant do what it wants to do.

or it was just the usb still having power during sleep that caused my comp to randomly boot either way those two simple changes stopped my pc from waking from sleep mode atleast for 4 hours i have yet to try it for a full day. i will post back up if the problem continues

cool, as long as you can still wake up the computer. If your keyboard is ps/2 or has the old style connector type it should wake the computer. A USB keyboard will not if the USB ports are powered down.
