cmdagent.exe preventing sleep

cmdagent.exe is preventing my system from sleeping. The system is set to sleep after 15 minutes of inactivity, but never does.

I get the following running powercfg /requests from the command prompt:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg /requests

[SERVICE] \Device\HarddiskVolume1\Program Files\COMODO\COMODO Internet Security\cmdagent.exe (CmdAgent)




If I kill cmdagent.exe, the computer sleeps as expected, but on next reboot the problem returns.
What can I do to solve this?


Interesting, I don’t have issues with setting the computer to sleep and running the same command shows None for Display, System, and Awaymode. Though execution and perfboost isn’t listed at all, what OS are you using and do you have the AV component installed? If you have the AV try disabling run cache builder when computer is idle under anti-virus settings, which I believe the default idle time to wait until running the task is 15 minutes, so you can either disable the setting or increase the idle time in windows task scheduler library under comodo.

Sorry for delay, oddly I didn’t get notified of your response. Thank you for the response in any case!
I’m running Windows 10 Pro here, all latest updates. I do have the AV component installed.
The problem is intermittent, though it’s been pretty solidly present for the last couple of weeks. Today however it’s solved itself - so I’ll wait til next recurrence before trying your suggestion.
