So obviously I've tried looking for the answer to this over the net to no avail, either because it's not too common, or maybe I'm using the wrong keywords. I know about the not sleeping issue some rigs got affected with after upgrading, but if I am reading correctly, my problem is different. My laptop (an ASUS X450L) can sleep fine if I press the power button or if I close the lid. The problem is when leaving it alone. It's set to sleep after 15min of no activity, and it never does. It used to sleep just fine before update, so right now I am not sure what new process came up to keep it awake. I already had a look at this site: How to Find Out What's Keeping Your Computer from Going to Sleep
, and it didn't help. It says that SideSync by Samsung is keeping my system awake, but this was a recent add-on which was installed after I noticed the problem.
As an experiment, I tried turning the screen off, with the laptop still running but with no user-opened programs running. The screen just pops back on after a few seconds, even if I did not touch the mouse or keyboard.
So basically, help in identifying the creep that keeps my rig awake.
