    How to wake from hibernation only through power button?


    I added hibernate into power menu so I can hibernate my Windows 10 now. But the thing is, the machine will wake from hibernation simply by a mouse move. This is not what I want. I just upgraded from Windows 7 so I want Win10 to behave like Win7 as much as possible. On Windows 7, I have to press the power button on chassis to wake from hibernation. How do I make it on Windows 10, i.e, wake from hibernation only through power button instead of mouse move? Thanks.

    Hello zzzhhh, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You can use an option in the tutorial below to prevent the devices you want from being able to wake the computer to stop this.

    Thank you Brink for your prompt and detailed reply. But the answer disables the mouse from waking the computer from both sleep and hibernation. What if I want to prevent the mouse from waking from hibernation but at the same time allow it to wake the machine from sleep?

    Waking from sleep and/or hibernate go hand in hand. I don't believe you can prevent it from one without also for the other.

    It is true from a programmer's point of view, but from a regular user's point of view, sleep and hibernation are far apart with almost nothing in common -- sleep is a low power-consumption mode, we still have to supply electricity, it can be waken up easily by move the mouse a bit or press space bar. While hibernation is just power off with desktop saved so that when we power the machine on again, the desktop remains unchanged so we can easily resume our work left last time. Since it is no different from power on, we have to press power button and wait a while for the machine to be on. -- This is a common consumer's point of view. Don't explain computer architecture or other technology to try to persuade these users. An operating system, especially a consumer-oriented one like Windows, should follow the standpoint and habit of normal user instead of that of a programmer. Of course, Microsoft can allege that Windows 10 was just designed for programmers, but compared to another OS that indeed gladly admits so (Linux), Windows is rubbish.

    PS: I can do that in windows 7. I can wake from sleep with keyboard but cannot wake from hibernation with keyboard in Windows 7.
