View Full Version : GL551JM Random Turn On Issue

I'm having an issue with my ASUS ROG laptop where it will turn on by itself without being touched. When it does it says the last wake state was due to the Power Button.

I found a thread here (http://superuser.com/questions/935603/laptop-waking-up-from-sleep-because-of-power-button-windows-8-1) that says an update to the BIOS fixed it however the latest for the GL551JM is 204 and that was a GL551JW which has a newer BIOS update.

Any help would be appreciated, it's annoying to have a dead laptop because it turned itself on over and over again in my backpack.

Actually isn't exactly random. It seems to turn on 3 hours almost to the minute it turned off.

I've tried turning off the turn on from lid in the BIOS. Made sure WoL and Wake on WAN were off even though it says Power Button. Can't think of anything else to try.

Anything plugged into the USB ports?

Nope, bought a bluetooth mouse to replace the wireless one I had because I thought that might be it.

Truly strange dilemma.
Something is causing it to issue a wake command. Sorry I cant issue any further insight as I dont have access to this model.
