  1. How do I change my mouse settings to not wake computer?


    Hey all,

    I have a peculiar issue. When I put my computer to sleep, mouse movement does not wake my computer. I can move the mouse all I want and it never wakes up.

    However, if I move my mouse in the split second after I click "sleep", then my computer wakes up immediately. It only wakes up if I move the mouse in this incredibly short time window after hitting sleep. If I leave the mouse perfectly still, click "sleep", them move the mouse after it is already asleep...the mouse movement does not wake the computer.

    How do I fix this? It is very strange to have to keep the mouse literally completely still, take my hand off, just click the left click with 1 finger to put it to sleep and slowly back away hoping the tiniest movement didn't occur during that time.

    I have tried going into device manager, unchecking "allow this device to wake computer" for both the mouse and USB settings. I have tried going into power settings and all of that. No options of waking, allowing waking, etc. etc. have made any difference.

    Thank you so much in advance!

    :)

    Can't stop mouse from waking computer


    I had already set the network driver (Nvidia) to not wake. At your suggestion, In power options I changed the Allow wake timers setting to Disable. Sorry to report, the mouse still wakes the computer. I do appreciate your help.

    Computer Randomly Turns on From Sleep

    I only saw this thread now, otherwise I would have suggested this sooner.
    I had that same problem you are having, my computer was waking-up from S3 and the culprit was my X7 mouse.
    powercfg -lastwake also listed the HID keyboard device which was an extension of the mouse.
    Besides going in device manager and setting everything to not being able to wake-up the computer from S3, I also did this to the power profiles:
