Computer starts in the middle of the night

After running four different games, I minimize all and put the computer to sleep or Hibernate. Sometimes in the middle of the night the computer starts and displays a screen of Google. The problem is, he loses all the games. It is said that they are not protected and I have for them all over again.
My question is, how to protect them from losing. And why the computer starts in sleep or Hibernate?



Welcome to Microsoft Answers Forum.

Since when are you facing this problem?

What are the recent changes?

Do save you the game before you put the computer to sleep or into hibernation Mode?

Are you using a mouse and keyboard wireless?

Have you encountered this problem before?

If you had not encountered this problem before you can go ahead and perform a restore of the system on your computer.

Try to restore the operating system to an earlier point in time when it worked great for the steps below:


Click Start, type system restore in the search box, and then click System Restore in the list programs. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type your password or click on continue.


In the System Restore dialog box, click on choose another restore point and then click Next.


In the list of restore points, click a restore point created before you started having the problem, and then click Next.

Click Finish.

I hope that this will really help you, good luck.

  • His Windows logon (7) does not play when the computer starts with the automatic logon.

    If I understand my Internet search, that this is a classic problem with Win7 and Vista I had my sound connection at startup of the computer each time. It comes, of course, with the sound of starting Windows (i.e. before opening of session) disabled.

    When I log out and then log in again once I get acoustic logging, so the question is about the AutoConnect at startup.

    I would really like to know if there is any small hack or trick that I could use to allow me to get a sound at startup to logon without having to connect.

    NB. There is no security issue on automatic logon, because it is a home computer and I live alone.

    Thank you very much

    I'm having the same problem, I think I'll call dell and see what they say, I integrated 5.1 audio so I guess that there is no sound card. I'll post my results

  • After shut my computer off for the night I seems to have lost all sound. I get a message telling me that I'm missing 1 or more codecs. Help?

    There is no sound when I start it or turn it off.  Windows Media player shows the audio streaming, but I have no volume.

    I checked all audio devices and they are fine.  I get a message saying that I'm missing 1 or more codecs.  I put it through all the help troubleshooting I can find with no luck.  Only once have I not an error code 0 x 80004005

    Any ideas?

    I suggest you uninstall your sound card in Device Manager (Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager) and restart. The sound card must be reinstalled the next time Windows starts. Who help me?

    Thank you for your response.

    I understand your concern.

    What is the brand and model of your computer?

    I suggest you to updating the BIOS of your computer from the manufacturer's website and then try again to install Windows 8

    Note: Changing the BIOS / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

  • Windows Explorer memory increases during the night

    Hi all

    I had a problem with Explorer windows for 3-4 weeks.  I don't have any problems during the day when I am on my PC, but the problem starts in the night (at any time after 01:00). Particularly explorer.exe in my task manager would eat more than 250 MB! While this may not seem catastrophic in terms of severity, 250 MBs is still a lot of memory, a task must use. In the morning that exploring is more than 250 MB, I try to open the files .doc, .xls files, IE 7 browser windows just to see if the RAM would be released. However explore is constantly using over 250 MB. The only way to solve this (very inefficient way) is by typing ctrl-alt-del, ending explorer.exe, then 'restart' Explorer by clicking on "New task" in the Task Manager and typing explorer.exe. This works that explorer.exe loads again with the memory of charges and remains around 20-35 MBs all day (after 01:00 again!).

    I tried troubleshooting with respect to viruses, malware, Trojans and rootkits, by contacting my AV tech. I am using Trend Micro Titanium + and the tech support agent told me to do these tests:

    (1) run Malwarebytes and do a scan complete (the scan came out clean)
    (2) run Trend Micro Housecall (the scan came out clean)
    (3) run Trend Micro HiJackthis and send in the analysis logs (agent tech analyzed newspapers and answered in 2 days and stressed that there is nothing to 'dangerous' to worry)
    (4) tool of SIC (system information Collector) and see if there are any 'suspects' process slows down explore dope

    After the end of step 4, the agent tech told me there was nothing really at their end, they could do (all troubleshooting tools mentioned in steps 2-4 out literally own and didn't report any malware or suspicious processes) and recommended to contact Microsoft.

    So now I'm here and want to find a way around this problem! Again the main issue is that every night (after 01:00) of explorer.exe in Task Manager uses over 250 MB of memory. This product every day when I leave the pc for the night and I discovered that explorer.exe use over 250 MB in the morning. Also here are my pc specs:

    -Pentium D 3.2 Ghz
    -2 GB OF RAM
    -Nvidia Geforce GT 430 graphics
    -XP Pro with SP3 and latest windows updates (as of June 16/11)

    I'm not an expert in their use, but I think you should be able to get to the bottom of this help Process Explorer and/or Process Monitor.  If you find it difficult to know how to use these tools, see the Forums of Sysinternals.

  • Why my fan starts running in the middle of the night?

    I have a macbook pro retina, and now four times my laptop fan is awake me in the middle of the night. I woke up at the hearing it next to my bed that run very hard and just turned off my computer so he can stop. Play video games that tend to run strongly, but it still does not go off and even when nothing works it lights. Why he starts without reason and how do I stop? Thank you!!

    After installing ElCapitan 10.11.4 on my G5, if I stopped for the night for some reason, the computer starts again sometime between 03:00 and 07:00. Any thoughts?

    Sounds like an Energy Saver preference, but what computer do you use?  A G5 (PowerPC) machine will not work on El Capitan.

  • I turn off my computer when finish work but it turns itself in the middle of the night.

    My computer seems to have a mind of itself. He wakes at night after being off for hours

    This problem is sometimes because your system is set on "Wake on LAN" which means that if a packet of information happens on your Ethernet (Internet) connection, which could bring your system to wake up and then find nothing to do.

    There is a good reason for that custom this feature in some environments, but usually not for a computing environment.
    You may have a task on demand that you have added or some third party program you have installed has added for you which could be put in place to wake up your computer when he thinks it's time to run.
    If you use the Stand By option and you have cats, they can walk on your keyboard or mouse and that might be enough to turn your system off Stand By.  If you are sure that you are really close, it would not be the problem,

    The parameters might be in your system or part of your Internet - BIOS that can be disabled if you don't need.
    You can search on the Internet with something like Google for your system and model and of wake on lan and should be able to know how to disable it for your system of brand not specified and the model.
    You can experiment and before spending the night, turn off your system in the usual way and then physically disconnect the Internet cable and see how things look the next day.
    Since the Microsoft Answers forum does not have any kind of information system request when a new question is asked, we know absolutely nothing about your system.  Not knowing the basic information a problem prolongs the frustration and the agony of these issues.
    Thank you MS Answers, allowing the resolution of simple problems as frustrating and a lot of time as possible.
    Provide information on your system, the better you can:
    What is your system brand and model?
    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?
    If the system works, what do you think might have changed since the last time it did not work properly?

  • Help - my laptop wakes up in the middle of the night?

    I checked my scheduled tasks, there is no timetable to wake up my laptop in the middle of the night.

    Someone has suggestions on the place where to check the events detailed in yesterday? so I can see which wake up my laptop.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions


    Thanks for the reply.

    Windows performs several tasks during the night, including the work of backup, defragmentation of hard disks, etc. These are usually the root cause of the alarms.

    You can begin troubleshooting by opening an elevated command prompt * and type powercfg /lastwake to see what woke up the last computer.

    * To open a command prompt, type cmd in the Start Menu, and then press Ctrl-Shift-Enter.

    Thank you.

    Looks like your user profile is damaged.  I hope that you do not use the built-in account named "Administrator".

    If the administrator account is not corrupted, it is available in XP Home restarting the computer in Mode safe.  In XP Pro, you can get on behalf of administrator mode without failure or by pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL twice at the 'Welcome' screen.

    Assuming that you can get an account with administrator privileges, administrator or another account that you have created and which has administrator privileges, see
