Intel NUC7i7BNH wakes up all the time because of certain LAN activity

Hi,

My problem is that when I put the NUC or it goes automatically in sleep mode, after a few minutes the NUC wakes up again.

It goes after the timer period again in sleep and wakes up again.

First I though it is certain software, but that is not the case. In the event viewer it recognizes unknown source.

Powercfg doesn't show any surprises.

So if my computer is on wifi, than it sleeps OK, on LAN not.

It must be connected on LAN, since I want to use LAN-wake to be able to use my computer remotely (so I can wake it up remotely), this only seems to work with LAN-wake-up.

Who has some ideas / tips?

Rob

Hello Rob,

Enter Settings>Network & Internet>Ethernet>Change adapter option(on R.H. side) . Mouse right click on your Ethernet adapter icon - menu opens. Click on Properties. Next, press on Configure. Now in Power Management tab check if Wake on Magic Packet is checked. If yes, uncheck it.
