I lifted it up and held it on the air. It still woke the comp.

I rang Belkin (who make power strips with built - in mains interference suppression) and was told that my problem is not caused by that. So I am stumped. I will need to switch the lamp on or off before I sleep the computer, and put up with the comp. waking up unnecessarily when I just want to use the desk.

Next time I am grovelling in the rat's nest I will make sure that the comp. and the light are not fed from the same power strip.

Since "Wake History" shows nothing this implies perhaps something amiss with Windows' Sleep.

This morning's result for me, whereby I awaken the computer with a Logitech wireless mouse and accompanying USB "wireless Unifying receiver":
