    Wireless Comfort 5050 won't let Windows 10 sleep


    I bought an HP All-in-One and was using the keyboard that came with it with no problems. After 10 minutes idle, the PC goes to sleep. But I love my Wireless Comfort 5050 keyboard and mouse, so I plugged in the little USB stick and it works great. I did have to pull the batteries from the HP keyboard and mouse as they continued working and I don't see how to disconnect them. Not sure how they connect, but there's no USB stick or anything like that to unplug.The problem is, after 10 minutes idle the PC goes to sleep, but in a second or two it wakes right back up. I know it's the Microsoft key
