W520 wakes itself most mornings

I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out why my W520 wakes itself up from sleep mode nearly every morning.  I have been through everything in the device manager and disabled Wake on LAN, I've disabled Wake on LAN in the BIOS, running "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" returns no results.

 

What am I missing?

Nothing in the eventlog? Try powercfg -lastwake too.

I think I've narrowed it down to a program called SyncBackFree, which had created a task in the Windows event scheduler to start everyday at 9:00am.

You need to figure out if you are using it. It wouldn't be something from the Lenovo image; it was manually installed later

Of course I'm using it, that was the point.  I removed the event scheduler entry, seems to be staying asleep until I manually wake it up now.
