I recently installed Windows 8 RTM, but found a very annoying thing. My PC always powered on automatically even in midnight. Eventually I noticed that I can power on the PC by pressing keyboard or mouse, and even moving mouse.

After searched this in Google, I turned off Sleep and Hibernate in Power Options -> System Settings -> Shutdown settings, but it still did not work.

Would anyone please help me? I don't want to suffer from the noise of PC powering on in midnight any more.

Try this:

  1. Control Panel > Mouse > Hardware > Properties > Change Settings > Power Management and uncheck "Allow this device to wake the computer".
  2. Control Panel > Keyboard > Hardware > Properties > Change Settings > Power Management and uncheck "Allow this device to wake the computer".
