Fing.agent is waking up my system (Win 10) frequently. Is there some way to prevent this?

I manually put my system to sleep but the logs show Fing.agent is waking it up. How do I stop Fing.agent from waking up my system?

    It would be helpful if you include a screenshot of the relevant section of the logfile, also the device that’s being “woken up.”
    Fing would normally only wake a device if a manual Wake on Lan command was sent?
    @robin have you any ideas/thoughts?

    Here is the log of the what is causing my system to wakeup when I want it to remain asleep for security reasons, assuming I understand this process correctly.

    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19041.867]

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg -waketimers

      Reason: Windows will execute 'NT TASK\HP\HP Print Scan Doctor\Printer Health Monitor' scheduled task that requested waking the computer.

    Hi @USMAGrad @Quinten

    We have released a new Fing desktop version 2.6.0. Can you please uninstall this version and download and install the latest version and check if the issue persists?
