My computer is waking up by itself from Hibernation. And according to the Event Viewer it's DisplayFusion service who is doing it... why??

Those event lines just mean the service received a message from Windows about a power event. If you run "powercfg /lastwake" at an elevated command prompt, it should show you the reason for the last wake.

Doesn't show any proper info...

If you run it right after it wakes from hibernation, does it show anything?

Exactly the same. And Event Viewer says "Wake Source: Unknown"... 🤔

This is the first message since the unexpected wake up in the Event Viewer:



"Reason: System time synchronized with the hardware clock."

I don't really know how to interpret that...

Strange, if you exit DisplayFusion, does the issue persist?

It seems it had to do with stupid Windows Update and other Scheduled Tasks, which were a pain in the ass to disable because Windows doesn't allow even the Administrators to change them. I leave the link to the fix here in case any other DisplayFusion users come up with the same problem:

Also, this utility lists all the hardware devices in your system that can wake it up and let you to manage them:

Thanks for your help.
