How to stop Windows 10 PC from waking in middle of night?

My PC wakes up all the time during the night, and since my PC is on a desk in my bedroom, when the fans kick on and the monitor lights up, I wake up too. How can I stop my Windows 10 PC from waking in the middle of the night?
This is most likely due to some processes trying to run at night.
To find out what was the cause you run command prompt (cmd) and use comand: powercfg –lastwake
Depending on what that point to you'd need to disable the wake on Lan feature for your network adapter, disable wake timer in power options, and check Task Scheduler for anything that's scheduled to wake your machine at night.

Here's a link with some details on how to check all of those:
