    W10 Pro v1903 How to prevent mouse movement from booting my PC


    I tried most everything suggested in a similar thread of 2015. I barely touch my mouse and instantly my PC boots up. I'm capable of pressing the ON button, I don't need help from the mouse. Any ideas on how to disengage this feature?

    "Booting" generally refers to starting the PC from a completely OFF condition. (Start > Power > Shut Down)
    Waking refers to bringing the PC out of Sleep or Hibernation modes.

    Are you saying the mouse can start the PC from a completely OFF condition?

    On BIOS settings - Power you have a option to wake up the computer by mouse and/or keyboard. Disable it.

    I intentionally said "boot" and yes it boots from the completely OFF condition! I can't even gently move my mouse out of my way. It is one sensitive mouse!

    Waking and booting are different issues. Waking my PC from sleep using my mouse is not an issue.

    Ok. Lets put this way:
    On BIOS settings - Power you have a option to BOOT up the computer by mouse and/or keyboard. Disable it.

    Now the key word appears to be "you." You apparently do have this option. It does not exist in my BIOS. I looked in every item in my BIOS. Dell likes to do it the Dell way. That or things have changed since 2016.

    If the computer is off, and by off it means that it has been shut ed down (not on sleep or hibernation mode), there is almost nothing on memory.
    So the signal to trigger to boot is given on a low level and the only thing that can give this signal is a hardware allowed by BIOS.
    Did you call Dell for help?

    That will be my next step. I always try first to find resolutions. Dell uses India for its cust. svc. now and understanding Indians is another undesirable challenge. Thanks.
