I tried something different yesterday.
Firstly, I put the system to hibernation (S4) and turn off the router to check whether it's responsible or not.
And after a while voila, NUC turned on by itself again. So, the router is out of game.
Then I put the sytem into sleep mode (S3) and again and again, it turned on by itself shortly after.
It's very frustrating. What else should I check?
Thanks for joining the NUC community.
I understand your computer is experiencing hibernation and sleep issues.
I am trying to replicate your computer issue. I will update this thread as soon as I get my findings.
It wakes up even the Wake on LAN option is not selected in BIOS.
Thanks for the update.
I have been testing same NUC model.
Hibernation, Sleep modes but the NUC stays that way.
I have tested BIOS 0027 and 0028; I was not able to replicate your issue.
I would say something on the NUC is triggering this wake up issue. It might be BIOS, hardware. At this stage, I recommend contacting Intel support for warranty options at:
Online warranty: Service Request Email

Do you use some infra-red remote control in the same room as the NUC, for example with Xbox? I am not from Intel but have found that with recent versions of BIOS the NUC will surprisingly turn on when the Pause button on a Microsoft remote is pressed.
Thank you for your replies.
dougho, Yes I have a lot of infrared remote controls in the same room. But since I already tried turning off NUC's IR sensor, it can't be the reason.
According to my recent attempts, I guess, the reason for this is Intel AC 7260.
If I check Deep S4/S5 in BIOS, NUC never wakes up, including remote wake on LAN attempts. Only the power button wakes it up.
Allan, could you attach the screen capture of your setup's Power tab in BIOS?
How do you turn off NUC's IR sensor? Regardless of whether I go into the BIOS settings and under Legacy devices and uncheck the box for Enhanced Consumer IR, my NUC with recent BIOS will still power on when I press the Pause button on my IR remote. This seems wrong to me, but it is what happens.
Oh, really? I didn't know that. I just unchecked the IR setting in BIOS. After that, I didn't need to check it with the remote (I use a Logitech Harmony One).
Allan, it looks like the same with my power settings except Intel Ready Mode Technology. Mine is unchecked.
I covered the IR sensor with black tape but NUC still wakes up.
I tried something different. Enabled wake the computer option at LAN adapter's (ethernet) power management setting and
disabled the same setting of WLAN adapter. After that the computer never wakes up from hibernation or sleep.
It seems that the problem is probably connected with AC 7260 (driver?) and not NUC.
It is the network driver. Intel is crazy for making a driver that the default values wakes the computer all by itself. Who the heck wants that? Disable all that... Intel is trying to take over the world with machines that awaken on their own!
