Windows 10: Computer wakes from hibernation in apparent adhoc manner

    Computer wakes from hibernation in apparent adhoc manner


    I've had this problem with Windows 10 since day one and for several months now had got to the point where I'd thought I'd got it sorted but tonight it's been up to it's usual tricks and booted up when not required. Further investigation under an admin prompt running this command:

    Code:
    powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
    revealed the following culprits:
    Code:
    HID Keyboard Device  (MS driver)
    Logitech HID-compliant Unifying Mouse
    HID-compliant mouse    (MS driver)
    ELECOM USB Mouse (001)
    Logitech HID-compliant Unifying keyboard (001)
    Logitech HID-compliant Unifying keyboard (003)
    I've been down this road before many times disabling devices in the power management tab. In device manager I could see all the above devices software drivers were dated no later than last year. But all have had events take place dated 18/11/2016, typically events were:
    Device configured
    Device started
    Device service added
    Device installed
    Device install requested

    Because of these events I presume the Power Management option 'Allow this device to wake the computer' had been enabled. One driver called 'ELECOM USB Mouse (001)' I didn't even recognise as I don't have an ELECOM mouse and have never seen this driver before.

    Shutting off devices from waking up one's computer should be straightforward BUT seems to be far from that in Win10.

    Does anyone have any solutions on this?
    Why do device events completely disregard and override the users preferred settings in power management?

    The keyboard and mouse have to stay enabled to wake up the computer from S3 state. Otherwise it just stays asleep forever. You cannot disable from Power Management. If you disable from the Device Manager, you will be asking why the computer cannot be woke up.

    I have the keyboard and mouse disabled, i wake the pc with the power button.
    Scheduled Tasks can wake a pc.
    In Power Options set Allow wake timers to disabled.

    Well I have and ALWAYS have disabled from power management and it's worked for ages.

    If I want to wake the computer from hibernation (S4) or sleep I do so from the power button. You should try it sometime

    Allowing a computer to wake in response to any mouse or keyboard events would drive me nuts, can't have that on a busy desk!!

    Did that years ago!

    Core question still remains....

    Why do device events completely disregard and override the users preferred settings in power management?
