Hello Mr.Karan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You should be able to use the "powercfg" command in the STEP FIVE section in the tutorial below to manually set this.

LOL, sorry about that. You cannot turn off the keyboard or mouse since they are always in use.

When they are not in use, they are technically off. If you just did not want them to be able to wake the computer from hibernation, then having the "Allow to wake" unchecked will do this.
