Wake Up Task won't work if PC put into sleep mode manually

Many times I use a keyboard shortcut I made to manually put my PC to sleep if I know I'm done with it for the day. The CMD embedded in the shortcut is the popular:
Code:
C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState sleep.
It works, no problem. The thing is I have a task scheduled to wake my PC every morning at 4:30. But the only time this task seems to work is when the PC went into sleep mode automatically or via the Start Menu option. If I use the keyboard shortcut to put it to sleep the wake up task doesn't work the next morning. Some have suggested that the code in that keyboard command puts the PC in hibernate mode even though it clearly says "sleep" but I have hibernate mode disabled.

Any clues...?
Windows 10 is up to date.
