B) In the elevated command prompt, type in the command below and press enter. WARNING:Be sure to write this device name down in case you want to be able to enable it again in step 3. Once you disable it, it will not be listed again in step 2A until enabled again.
powercfg -devicedisablewake "exact name of device listed in step 2A"
For example, for the Logitech HID-Compliant Keyboard device listed in step 2A, I would type this command below exactly and press enter.
A) If you did not write down the device name (ex: Logitech HID-Compliant Keyboard) from step 2 that you disabled, then you can also look in Device Manager to see the name of the device. (see screenshot below)
B) In the elevated command prompt, type in the command below and press enter.
powercfg -deviceenablewake "exact name of device listed in step 2A or Device Manger"

Brink I have a question about this:
When I remove the Allow this device to wake the computer checkbox from a keyboard and I remove the keyboard and connect it to a different usb port, it is once again set to wake the computer unless I put it back in the original port.
It seems like this setting is configured on a 'port'-basis rather then (just) a 'device'-basis and it's default configuration is to 'allow' the wake up.
Should I connect it to all of the ports and disable all of them, or is there a general setting for this? Is there a way to change this default behaviour? As this would be way faster.
