I have a Windows 10 box set to automatically sleep, but it will sometimes wake up when someone walks by.

Is there a way in Windows 10 keep waking up on a mouse button push, but not wake if the mouse is merely moved?

Bonus points for the same question for Linux or OSX. In my case it's a standard wireless HID mouse.

I my case I know the mouse is set to wake (and testing it wakes both on movement and on button push):

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
HID-compliant mouse (001)
HID Keyboard Device (003)

Go to "mouse properties" in the classic control panel -> Hardware -> HID-compliant mouse -> Properties -> Change settings -> Uncheck "Allow this device to wake the computer"

Note that only button clicks on the keyboard will now wake up the computer.
