Windows 7: Disable Mouse and Keyboard from Turning On Monitors?

06 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64 w/ Dual Multi-Touch Monitors

No luck with BIOS settings ...

I'm starting to agree with zzz2496. However, if there is a way to disable the mouse when the screen turns off and enable it when the screen is back on, wouldn't that solve this issue?

Perhaps a script of some sort? ... In the link I provided in my original post, it mentions the use of a free command line based software called NirCMD to control certain things in windows through shortcuts ... Maybe an approach like that would solve this problem, nevertheless, I haven't figured it out yet.

Thanks for your help guys. If any software could be utilized to do this please let me know.

I was looking for an answer to this too and the only thing I came across is this post here Prevent mouse to turn on monitor - Windows - Super User

They suggested to just turn your mouse upside down. It does work though it looks pretty inelegant. Someone else suggested writing a screensaver to disable the mouse and gave some tips on what to do but I have no clue on stuff like that. Maybe someone else does?

This seems like a common enough complaint that MS would have included an option for it but I guess not.
