Windows 7: Windows 7 Suspension/Hibernation Doubt

Windows 7 Suspension/Hibernation Doubt

First of all, I didn't know in which section to open this thread, so I did it on this one, if it's not on the right one, sorry , and second I don't know if someone ever asked this here on this forum, I tried to make a brief search through google and such, but didn't got any positive results, maybe because English isn't my mother language and am not searching the right keywords...

SO, this is it: Is there any way or tweak to change the computer behavior on Suspension/Hibernation? I mean, I wanted it to wake only if I pressed the Power Button, not by tapping a key on keyboard or moving with the mouse.
And why I want this? Well mainly because I suspend my computer more often than shut down, and sometimes it wakes up alone in the middle of the night when I'm asleep and I have to get up to turn it down, I think its the mouse that is too sensitive and does that, and the second reason is, my mom, when he gets to my room , touches something, there, the computer wakes as well..
So, is there anyway to tweak it?
THanks !

One way you should be able to do this:

Open a Command Prompt (CMD) window and run this command (may need to Run as administrator)
Powercfg -devicequery wake_armed

If you see your mouse listed you can run a command to disable it's wake ability

The syntax is device specific, but here is a command I used for an MS mouse
Powercfg -devicedisablewake "Microsoft USB Wireless Mouse (IntelliPoint)"

You will need to replace the device in red in my example with the exact text you see in your wake_armed list for a mouse

You can disable wake ability for any device...
If you need help with your specific devices, copy the output from the wake_armed command and post it in your reply

Another way:

Right click your mouse in Device Manager, select Properties from context menu, select / unselect Allow this device to wake the computer according to what you want to. Notice that you need to do this separately for every mouse you want to enable / disable, for instance in case of laptops also for the TouchPad.

Thing is, when I run that command, neither mouse or keyboard appears on the list, only modem/ethernet controler. Nor on where you said Kari...

I have never ever heard about a Windows 7 installation where both mouse and keyboard are working but neither can be found in Device Manager.

Please open the Device Manager, make a screenshot of it and post here. Before continuing we need to fix this very strange and basically impossible issue, no mice and keyboards in Device Manager.

To open the Device Manager:
  • Click Start
  • Right click Computer, select Properties. This opens the System window
  • Click Device Manager on the left pane:

  • Now click the small arrowhead to the left of titles Keyboards and Mice and other pointing devices to expand those to show all installed keyboards and mice and make the screenshot

Thing is, they do show up on device manager, but when I click properties, the last tab "power management" isn't there, same for command prompt, here's a screenshot:

Do you logon Windows with a Standard account (not an Admin account)?
If you do, can you logon with an Admin account and see if the Power Management tab is displayed?

Looks like you have a PS/2 mouse and keyboard.
Do you have a USB mouse you can try to see if the Power Management tab is displayed?

I found this MS article. You might not be able to disable wakeup with a PS/2 mouse or keyboard.

Actually I dont have any usb mouse/keyboard, so that means with a PS/2 I can't disable it? Meh, too bad

PS: and yes, I'm with admin account on the computer
