Windows 7: How to stop computer switching on when mouse is clicked

How to stop computer switching on when mouse is clicked

Hi all,

I have one question. How can I stop the computer switching on when the mouse is clicked? I swear I found and changed this option once but all of a sudden my computer is switching on again whenever I accidentally click the mouse.

Note: When I say "switching on" I mean from Standby, not when it's been shut down.

Thanks in advance.
