    Can't stop mouse from waking computer


    Win 10 pro 10240, logitech m705, running Setpoint.
    I've disabled mouse waking computer for the two mouse drivers I can find. Nevertheless, the mouse continues to wake. Could there be some other driver (like Nvidia) which needs tweaking? When I was using a usb mouse the settings worked fine.

    Run Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) and select your mouse and select the properties. Now go to the power options tab and uncheck the checkbox "Allow this device to wake up the PC".

    Hope this helps,
    John

    Check in BIOS options too.

    Thanks, both --

    Pharo, as I said, I already disabled the mouse waking in the driver.

    CountMike, I'll check Bios as soon as I figure out how. , , ,

    CountMike, I looked up Bios and followed the leads therein. But I did not allow a repair, simply a reboot, as repair may do more harm than good. I'll live with the wakeful mouse.

    As I don't know which exact MB you have I can only guess details but generally settings for wake up events, like Wake on LAN, wake by KB or mouse are somewhere in power saving section in BIOS.

    You can always use the powercfg -lastwake command at an administrative command prompt to have the system tell you what woke it up. Sure sounds like "the mouse made me wake up" is true, but that way you can check for sure.
    HTH,

    Ed, Thanks for the suggestion but no joy this time:
    "C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg -lastwakeWake History Count - 0"

    Sorry it didn't help. It has worked for me on a couple of occasions, one where "magic packet" was the culprit, and another was the mouse. As they say on the Internet "YMMV" (your mileage may vary! ;-).
