    Mouse Disabled to wake computer, but still does


    Hello, I hope this is the right thread. I recently redid all my windows as it was time to clean everything out. When all was said and done, I only wanted my keyboard to be the only thing that wakes my computer. I've disabled everything (network adapters, etc) and the mouse within device manager. Yet, somehow - my computer is still able to be woken with the mouse. Is there something else that I'm missing? It's a Logitech G500, there is nothing in logitech gaming software I can find about this and it's already disabled in device manager (as well as any other mice that are listed). Thank you!

    Hello Ghost,

    Double check your BIOS/UEFI settings to see if there may be an option to disable for allowing the mouse to wake the system.

    Fixed it! My mouse was listed under Keyboards as an HID device (as per checking the hardware ID's under details) - unchecking the wake feature on that HID device fixed the issue. Thanks though!
