My Win7 notebook wakes up from sleep after disconnecting mouse. It is very annoying since I usually disconnect the mouse when I want to put it in the bag and leave. Vista behaves in the same manner. How can I change this behaviour?
Control Panel-> (window/startmenu -> control panel)
Change Setting-> (button:vista/win 7 only)
Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby (checkbox)
It doesn't fix the problem entirely, because the mouse can't wake the computer at all (not just on unplugging)... but since it's a laptop mouse, I suspect it's a minor inconvenience. Nov 2, 2009 at 22:52
