    Computer went sleeping even after waking with Task Scheduler in Windows 8

    've created a Task to wake the computer at 5:00am every day. It works but after a minute or 2, the computer go back to sleep like someone that doesn't want to go to work. I don't have anything in my power plan to make the computer going to sleep, because I did remove it. Basically what I do is, at 7:00pm, I put the computer to sleep myself because I know it's time for it and I need the computer to wake at 5:00am and stay awake. I don't know why Windows 8 go back to sleep after waking it up by a Schedule Task. I'm not sure is that the computer wakes all right but since nobody logs in, that's why the computer go back to sleep even though it's not configured in the power plan. I don't really know what to do to make sure the computer stay awake. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hello friend......

    I would suggest you to run "power" troubleshooter to diagnose the exact issue
    Follow the steps:
    a.press "Windows Key + W" from your keyboard.
    b.Type "troubleshooting"Without quotes in the search box and hit enter
    c.select "view all" option from the left panel.
    d.select "power" and follow the on screen instructions.

    All the best.
