Windows 10 Sleep mode doesn't work

The sleep mode on my computer doesn't work properly. I go to Start->Power->Sleep and the computer turns completely silent (like it should), but after a few minutes it begins making noise.


I have tried to turn off "hybrid sleep mode", but with no luck.

Open an elevated command prompt and run the following
  • powercfg /lastwake (this will tell you what device woke the system from sleep last
  • powercfg /devicequery wake_armed (this will tell you which devices can wake your system)
  • powercfg /requests (This will list any service, process or driver that is blocking sleep)
You may also want to run powercfg /A to see which sleep states your computer supports
