My wireless mouse on my laptop keeps waking my PC which is no good when I am at school and its in my backpack burning up.
This is what I have tried thus far:
1) I went to control panel > mouse properties > hardware > selected the HID-compliant mouse with device properties of "Location: on USB input device", clicked on Properties > Power Management tab > and UNCHECKED the box that says "Allow this device to wake the computer"
2) For sake, I checked it, saved, and unchecked it... , also I do have the sleep utility that allows power to go to usb devices during sleep/hibernate TURNED OFF, confirmed this is working as my laptop cooler fan turns off when I hibernate.
Note: Tested sleep mode, with laptop lid opened, pressed buttons on built in keyboard and mouse pad on laptop and it doesnt turn it on, only the wireless mouse. =(
Specs: Laptop - Toshiba Portege - R705-P35 Mouse - Logitech M570 Trackball (uses the mini USB RF "Logitech Unifying Device" adapter)
Any suggestions on how to keep laptop from turning on when mouse ball moves or button is clicked would be appreciated.
SOLUTION: Make sure you uncheck the box "Allow this device to wake the computer" for the KEYBOARD and not just the mouse!
