Windows 10: How to stop the mouse waking up the machine?

    How to stop the mouse waking up the machine?


    Hello folks,

    I am trying to figure out how to stop the mouse from waking up the machine. I checked mouse power management and the option 'Allow this device to wake up the computer' is not checked. Screenshot below. Still the mouse wakes up the laptop. How do I fix this? Thanks in advance.

    Hello crackhammer, :)

    It may be USB waking the PC instead.

    You can use the tutorial below to see the wake source.

    You can use the tutorial below to see a list of devices able to wake the PC, and disable the one responsible based on the wake source.

    However stupid it may sound try a different USB port or use a very handy little tool called DriveCleanup (disconnect your mouse before using it). I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the computer's power options.

    Does your laptop wake up when you plug in for example a USB stick, when the computer is in a stand-by, so to speak, mode?

    Its the USB Root Hub that is waking up the laptop, but I don't have permission to enable to disable device wake. The command prompt was fired up in administrator mode!!



    @Win10Pro,
    I ran DriveCleanup, it removed a few entries but didn't solve the issue.

    crackhammer,

    Does the mouse still wake the computer if connected to a different USB port?

    Have you already checked all your BIOS options?

    @Brink,
    I checked all USB ports and found a port through which the mouse does not wake the laptop up. So sticking to it (but I would really like to know why it woke up through the other USB ports).
    @Win10Pro,
    I checked BIOS, couldn't find anything that would confirm BIOS connection.

    So the problem is not really solved but temporarily addressed.

    Good news so far.

    Some BIOS/UEFI settings may have an option to enable or disable wake from USB in the Power section.
