Windows 7: Keyboard wakes computer from sleep

Keyboard wakes computer from sleep

I have a Logitech wireless keyboard and a conventional USB keyboard attached (Win 7).
Touching any key on either keyboard will wake the computer. But I don't want that.

In device manager I see three keyboards. (Why three instead of two?)
- HID Keyboard Device
- HID Keyboard Device
- Logitech HID-compliant Unifying Keyboard

In device manager each one of those has a Power Management tab.
In each case the box called "Allow this device to wake the computer" is NOT checked.

So why does the computer wake up when I press a key?

Hello margrave,

You could use the tutorial below to help get the ID of the keyboard waking the computer.

Devices - See Devices that are able to Wake Up the Computer

Afterwards, you can use the tutorial below to see if it may disable the keyboard from waking the PC.

The only thing powercfg showed was the HID mouse.

But yet touching the KEYBOARD wakes up the computer.
Well, the keyboard and mouse are part of a Logitech pair. Maybe that's why Windows cannot distinguish.

Anyway ... in Device Manager I shut off power-wakeup for the mouse and now the keyboard does not wake it up.

Thanks.

My laptop will start just fine, but if it goes to sleep when I try to wake it up it will crash. This is not a random issue, it happens every time the computer wakes up. When the problem first started, it would give an error box that read "dmw.exe Application Error" before it would go to the...
