        I’ve been using the same power plan for ages. It was set to hiburnate after 5760 minutes (4 days) or when battery dropped to 40%.  Now the computer is hiburnating overnight with battery at 70%! I hadn’t changed anything – Windows updated March 29.

        So I’ve changed my power plan to shutdown at 40%, hiburnate “never”, shutdown from the power button, and disabled ‘fast start’. So far no hiburnates or shutdowns. Has anyone had this problem before?

        Have you checked to see that the sleep mode is set to the regular S3 and not hybrid sleep?

          Sleep works normally.. and has for a long time. My laptop doesn’t even support s3 sleep. The hibernation started happening when it shouldn’t. Maybe it shutting down in the night… Starting up from either looks the same. Finding a scheduled program that could do this is like finding a needle in a haystack.

            I meant to say it doesn’t support hybrid sleep!

        My guess would be that some scheduled task is the culprit. But, as you said finding the one in task scheduler can be daunting. Have you installed anything new recently? Any updates? Made any configuration changes?

          Tthe only recent change was a Win update as mentioned. I’m tempted to revert to a backup before that as a last resort.  (About a year ago a Windows schedule for Universal Orchestrator caused havoc  on some PCs until it was updated. I hope this isn’t a repeat.)

            Have you checked the event logs for an indication?

            How about the reliability monitor?
