My mouse is so sensitive that it randomly wakes my computer up even when I don't touch the mouse. I don't want this to happen, so I want to disable the mouse's ability to wake the computer.
I know it's the mouse waking the computer because I ran
So I've tried this:
- Click Start.
- Type "cmd" into the Search box.
- Press Ctrl+Shift+Enter
- Click "Run as Administrator".
- Type the following command and press Enter:
powercfg -devicedisablewake "HID-compliant mouse"
I get this error:
You do not have permission to enable or disable device wake.
So instead I go into
Device Manager >
Mice and other pointing devices >
HID-compliant mouse and uncheck the box (within the mouse configuration) that says
Allow this device to wake the computer.
When I run
powercfg -devicequery wake_armed, nothing appears, which is good.
So for a while, the next few sleep sessions are fine, and the mouse doesn't wake the computer.
But then eventually something rechecks that checkbox (
Allow this device to wake the computer) and so my ultra-sensitive mouse starts waking the computer from sleep all the time*. I can't seem to get the checkbox to stay empty. Any ideas?
P.S. I have a Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 and a computer running Windows 7.
