Screen saver wakes during night [solved]

Post by shiv108 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 5:38 pm

Greetings,

I have a continuing issue on one machine. Seems Chromium browser* is waking the computer after a few hours. It doesn't matter what power or screen saver setting is. This behavior stops when Chromium is closed. Screen stays off. Other browsers don't seem to cause it. I use some chrome extensions-- is one of these causing it? I have tried to turn off wol in bios.

I couldn't attach a screenshot, they are: google docs offline, lastpass, privacy badger, the great suspender, ublock origin.

(*Version 66.0.3359.181

I found another thread on here that relates, doesn't solve the issue.

Update: I turned off all chromium extensions. Seems one of them was waking the screen. The great suspend.

Update: Never mind. The program still does it. I still use extensions. Chrome forums suggest it is a larger issue, long standing. Darn.
