hi guys

i am running a server which i want to hibernate at 10pm and startup at 10am. I created two tasks in windows task scheduler one hibernates pc at 10pm while the other runs a null.bat file at 10am. wake up computer to run task is enabled. however the server keeps waking up in the middle of the night way before 10am. I have no idea whats going on.

There is a ms web page on that. There is a log on your computer but I forget where it is. It tells why it woke up. (is that a real word woke?)

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

wake on lan is turned off in both bios and device manager. if i shutdown the computer will i be able to turn it on with task scheduler?
