I am having issues with my windows 8.1 laptop waking from sleep while the lid is closed. I keep it in a sleeve which keeps the lid closed tight. It seemed as though the slightest bump can cause it to wake, but not always. (a mystery)
Other site seem to say it is impossible to disable the lid open wake feature. They say if you open the lid, why shouldn't turn on. In my case is kills my battery and i am afraid it will start a fire in a confined space.
Here are some of the things I tried:
- disable sleep on lid close. This did not fix the problem.
- ran cmd.exe (run as administrator) to gain access to devices that wake from sleep
powercfg.exe /DEVICEquery wake_armed. This gave me 4 devices that were configured to wake from sleep. one was the mouse which i disabled with
powercfg.exe /DEVICEDISABLEWAKE "HID-compliant mouse". I did this for all four devices. (I am still waiting to see if this solved the problem. I bounced the device on the table and it did not wake up this time).
What am I missing here.
I use a wireless mouse and keyboard. they both have off switches. I disable the wake on the premise that I might not always turn them off. They are in my bag with my laptop. I considered any movement might wake the laptop. I moved the mouse and struct keys on the keyboard and it did not wake the laptop.
Any help is greatly appreciated
