I have a Lenovo H50-50 PC running Windows 10 version 1709. The -Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft) is waking my PC by itself. I verified that this is the cause by going to the Event Viewer. How can I disable that from happening?

I have not experienced that myself. For the original problem, go into device manager and into usb controllers. Here you wll find usb controllers etc and try goings into each one and onto power managment. There, untick the box that allows it to wake the computer. What confuses me is that Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller does not have a power options tab.

I have no more ideas so I gave it a google. Probably a problem with windows not lenovo. Got this from microsoft's website:
Method 1: Run power troubleshooter.
a. Press Windows +R key on the keyboard.
b. Type troubleshooting in the pop-up box and press Enter.
c. Click System and Security on left panel.
d. Click Power, new window will popup.
e. Follow the on screen instructions.
Method 2: update Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver from this link.
Method 3: Compatibility mode
Follow the steps below on how to install driver in compatibility mode:
1. Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website and save it on your local disk.
2. Right click on the setup file of the driver and select “Properties”.
3. Select “Compatibility” Tab.
4. Place a check mark next to “Run this program in Compatibility mode” and select operating system from the drop down list.
5. Let the driver install and then check the functionality.
