    Replaced wired keyboard with Bluetooth keyboard. PC no longer sleeps..


    I recently got rid of a cabled keyboard in favor of a smaller bluetooth keyboard (MS Mobile 6000). Everything is great except that now, I have a hard time putting my PC to sleep. In fact, it tends to wake up after 30 seconds or so. I'm pretty sure this is due to the BT keyboard.

    Would anyone please share the solution to this?

    Well, you can load Device Manager (search for device to see link) and then right-click the keyboard and select Properties. Click the Power Management tab and uncheck the box "Allow this device to wake the computer". This should fix the problem.

    Only place I see it is under the Bluetooth header, and right clicking the "Microsoft Bluetooth Mobie Keyboard 6000" does not have a tab for Power Management. The only place that tab shows is when I right-click the overall Bluetooth header for the entire Bluetooth devices section, and its already unchecked.

    Any other ideas?

    Problem solved. Posting solution here to assist future travellers who may stumble upon this!

    The only thing that needs to be disabled is the "Allow the device to wake the computer" for the Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

    But I've noticed with some major windows updates, it can creep back on. So if ever the PC refuses to stay asleep, this is the first place to look, at least in my case it is.

    I hope this assists someone in the future.
