Prevent USB Devices from waking computer

Hi


I want to prevent all USB devices from waking up the computer.
This is a HP 6720s notebook and it's very annoying it wakes up when I disconnect the USB mouse etc...


I wonder if it's possible to wake up the computer by pressing a key on the internal keyboard. Currently I can only wake it by pressing the power button.


Update: I wonder what is Selective USB Suspension. What does it do? It's enabled now but I wonder if disabling it would solve my problem?
