Windows 10 Disable & Enable Wake Timers in Power Management (battery saving) VIDEO TUTORIAL
Here we show you how to disable devices from waking the computer from sleep mode using the Power Management options. Sometimes this option might not be displayed so we show how to enable the options.
Certain devices have a power feature that enables them to wake the computer automatically from a sleep state e.g. a mouse movement or keyboard or the network card. Some may not desire such device behaviour. In some cases they could be a security risk or could drain your battery.
