    Hi,

    for many months now I am trying to find out what makes Win 10 consume CPU and memory specific hours of the dy (23:00 - 02:00).

    When I open the task manager, I can see different processes consuming resources; anything from svhost to Opera or the Task Manager itself.

    I have checked if it is attempting to update windows but the active hours prevent it from this.

    Anyone any idea where to look at?

    Thanks

    check task scheduler and see what runs at that time

    ^that and it might just be the optimization/indexing routines.

    As said, the task manager shows different processes to consume resources.

    How do I disable indexing? When I go to control panel and settings and select the folders the Pause button is disabled

    drive properties > tools > optimize
    turn off scheduled optimizations.

    drive properties > general > untick bottom indexing box

    pendragon1 Thanks I disabled it. Let's see what happens.

    I also moved some apps to use the NVidia card instead of the integrated one. Not that it will make a difference

    Steps 1

    1. Open the task manager.
    2. Checked what are Processes running under Apps and Background processes.


    Steps 2

    1. Go to Run and type resmon.exe and it will open the Resource Monitor
    2. Then you can see the CPU and Memory usage.
