T420 wakes up automatically from hibernate due to Intel Identity Protection Technology (IPT)


I noticed the laptop was switched on by itself overnight and was in standby mode in the morning.


Looking at the Event log revealed it was being turned on by:

Intel (R) Identity Protection Service Resume from Suspend


Anyone know why this happens and how to turn it off short of disabling/removing Symantec VIP Access and Intel IPT?


Go into the ThinkPad Power manager and disable "Wake Timers" on your currently selected power plan.
