powercfg --energyfrom the command line (in Administrator mode) and it will run for one minute, then generate an HTML-formatted report that describes everything that happened in that minute that consumes power. So, you can run it, then put the computer to sleep for at least a minute, then see what it says was running.
Has anybody actually sat down with Asus support to see what's going on?
One thing I've seen other people complain about is that the performance profiles in Armoury Crate take over the Windows power profiles, changing them on certain events without regard for what you've set up yourself. For example, I think it switches profiles every time you plug / unplug the computer. I've tried to customize behavior in Power Options, and sometimes it stays asleep, but sometimes it won't. I have a feeling that it might be due to Armoury Crate tinkering with the settings I fixed.
I just want to make sure that absolutely nothing can wake it from sleep when it's closed unless I push the power button. That shouldn't be hard!
yes, Every time I uncheck" allow this device to wake the computer " I found windows re-enabled it again after restart or full shutdown " without fast boot " , actually it's very weird & I don't know the real cause !
you are right maybe it's a service, you know when I tried to disable it completely from device manager " disable device" the GPU started to heat and laptop started to consume a lot of power as if the GPU is working but it's not !!!
Actually till now I am not sure if this is the real problem or not , please if you found any thing might help tell me .
