While you’re most likely receiving the ‘Call of Duty: Warzone Blizzard Agent went to sleep’ error message because the servers are down, something else could be causing the problem. Thanks to u/aidans2000 archived Reddit thread, we can say that AVG Antivirus could be causing the issue. You’ll want to make sure that you add the Battle.net launcher as an exception to the firewall. This could make it so you don’t receive the error message outside of server downtime.

To add the Battle.net Agent application as an exception to the firewall, you could need to follow these steps (if the application doesn’t appear in your list of applications on your AVG Antivirus):

  • Open up AVG Antivirus
  • Head into Settings, then Full Protection, Enhanced Firewall, Packet Rules
  • Check what port the Battle.net Agent is opening into (it should be in this file location: C:/ProgramData/Battle.net/Agent/Agent.6700/Logs) and use just one of them if there are multiple
    • Fill ‘Local Port’ in with the port number given on the “Agent started on port #[whatever the port number here is”
    • Fill ‘Remote Port’ in with the number given after the colon in the logline “Checking Network Connection status…”
  • Set Battle.net Agent onto ‘Allow’
    • Add it to the TCP/UDP Protocol
      • In/Out Direction
  • Move Up the new exception to the top of the list, choose OK and leave the program
  • Relaunch Battle.net

Hopefully, this fix might work for you. If this doesn’t work, try reinstalling the Battle.net launcher. If none of these fixes work, the servers are more than likely currently down.
