I was wondering if there is any setting to make my PC exit stand-by only when the power button is pressed on my computer case?

My laptop does this out of the box, it won't exit stand-by on any other hardware event. My PC however will also exit stand-by when I press a keyboard or a mouse button.

Try this for the mouse, although the check box is not there often missing for keyboards:

Also look in the BIOS settings for "Wake on Keyboard".

Aha, thank you! I also found the same setting on my keyboard, and they both work. – Simon Verbeke Dec 31 '12 at 3:04
