    Turning on BlueTooth Devices Turns on PC


    I have a BlueTooth speaker that sometimes I will connect to my PC for listening to music. If I don't disconnect the speaker from Windows, then turning on that speaker will turn on the computer if it's off. The power management tab for the Bluetooth USB "dongle" is disabled; I've checked all the drivers are up-to-date but still can't figure it out. Are their any other settings I might be missing, or any other method to prevent this?

    Just a guess, my BIOS has a setting for Wake on LAN, maybe yours has something like that which could be disabled. The Bluetooth on Notebooks is frequently part of the Wi-Fi adapter, if one is off so is the other. Some Desktop computers are starting to come with Bluetooth, I have a Bluetooth 'dongle' on one of mine for pairing with a PDA.
