  • Do you have a screen saver set to come on after a specific amount of time? Also when you bump it, its possibly causing the mouse to move and the computer comes out of sleep turning the monitor on as a result of that.

  • Hi,


    In order to narrow down the root cause, we need to know which device wakes up the computer. I suggest you collect the following information.


    First of all, please restart the computer, and reproduce this issue. Then, collect Powercfg result.


    Collect Powercfg result


    1. Click Start. In the Start Search dialog box, type: cmd, and right-click cmd.

    2. Click Run as administrator.

    3. Please run the following commands one by one.


    powercfg -devicequery wake_armed

    powercfg -lastwake


    4. Right click on CMD window, choose “Select All”, and press Ctrl+C on keyboard.

    5. Paste the result on the forum.


    One I get the result, I will take a further research on it.


    Thank you for your cooperation.


    For more information about Powercfg:


    Powercfg Command-Line Options



    hope it helps.
