P53 waking up from sleep randomly (LAN card)

2020-09-18, 13:07 PM

Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, ver 1909 (preinstalled) - up to date, also drivers are up to date

 

It keeps waking up from sleep on its own.

 

"powercfg -lastwake" shows it is the " Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (7) I219-LM" LAN adapter at fault.

 

But after disabling the "Allow This Device to Wake the Computer" option in Device manager on this device, it keeps happening. (powercfg -lastwake still says it it the LAN adapter)

 

Any idea?

It is very annoying, as it lights up the room in the middle of the night when it wakes up.

Hello,


I do not have a ThinkPad P53 myself, but I am wondering if there is an option in the BIOS (UEFI) firmware under Config → Network → Wake On LAN to disable the WOL functionality as there is on older models.

 

Regards,

In Device Manager under the Advanced tab I disabled some more Wake options for the LAN card.

 

Now some USB device wakes the PC, I suspect the external mouse.

 

Also, Windows updates forces a wake up, google it how to disable it.

 

With all of the above, the problem does not happen any more, or at least happens much less often.
