Windows 7: Computer keeps "waking up" after going to sleep

27 Dec 2014   #11

Windows 7 64 bit
Sorry for the resurrection

Sorry to resurrect this post. I've pulling my hair out on trying to figure out what's been pulling my computer out of sleep constantly and forever. After nearly uninstalling almost everything and using tcpmon procmon and every other sysinternals app I could find, I finally ran across this post. So I signed up solely to give credit and say thanks for the post.

I recently did install a wireless mouse and I since I went into device manager and the properties of the mouse. I unchecked allow this device to wake the computer. So far so good.

So anyway... Thanks

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Something else to check. Rt. click computer/manage/device manager. Rt. click on any network adapters>properties>power management tab. Uncheck 'allow this device to wake the computer'. I've also had a wireless mouse cause this problem.

Hope this helps.
