Re: media center update in windows 7 wakes up the computer

I have used windows7 media center many times and I think this problem mostly comes when the update function of media player starts automatically and you can solve this issue by changing the schedule setting of the update function in windows media center . the default setting is update daily and you have to change this setting to update at log on.

You can also try with this solution also just go to the windows media center and then select the mcupdate schedule , from the mcupdate schedule window you will be offer with a list of options select setting from this window and in setting you can set the update to off , once you set the update to off then your computer not wake up at all.
