    Re: Wake up issue with windows 7 laptop

    Normally,windows performs many tasks like backup, defragmenting hard drives etc at night. These are the root cause of wakeups.However you can troubleshoot this issue after using "powercfg /lastwake" command in elevated command prompt. You can open an elevated command prompt by typing "cmd" in the start menu and pressing Ctrl+Shift+Enter. If you want to disable it then Enter the BIOS and check the "Wake On" settings. You may need to disable one or many options as per your need.
