    Waking from sleep after 30 seconds

    My hackintosh wakes from sleep every 30 seconds. The fans start, the display comes on showing the login screen, then it goes back to sleep again. It does this every 30 seconds. I just updated to 10.15.4 hoping this might fix it - but it is still doing it. Any advice on how to fix?
