    How to prevent mouse from waking PC from sleep? Tried Mouse properties


    Win 10 system, I'm trying to prevent the mouse from waking the PC from sleep since bumping into my desk is sufficient to move the mouse and thus wake up the PC, which is very annoying.

    Mouse is a Logitech wireless mouse that uses a Logitech unifying receiver.

    I used this method, except since I have a Logitech wireless mouse, in Device Mgr, under "Mice", I have two devices:
    -HID-compliant mouse
    -Logitech HID-compliant Unifying Mouse

    For both of these, I went to Properties > Power Mgmt and unchecked "Allow this device to wake the computer".

    Mouse movement still wakes the PC from sleep. Any ideas?

    That's a good idea, though not particularly convenient as I'd have to remember to turn it off at the end of every day, and then be annoyed every morning when the mouse doesn't respond until I remember to turn it back on.

    Still, it's an improvement on the current situation.

    Problem solved.

    In Device Mgr, under Keyboards, there are 2 keyboard devices - one for the actual (wired) keyboard and the other for the Logitech Unifying Receiver (I've got the receiver plugged into a USB port on the keyboard). For the latter, I went to Properties > Power Mgmt and unchecked "Allow this device to wake the computer".

    With this option disabled for the two mouse devices and this keyboard device, the mouse does not wake the PC. Keyboard wake works as expected. Perfect!

    Hope this helps anyone else who runs across this issue.
