Windows 7: How do I prevent the mouse from turning my display on?

25 Mar 2013   #1

Windows 7 64 Bit
How do I prevent the mouse from turning my display on?

I'm talking just my monitor...Not the PC being in sleep mode. I want just the keyboard to turn on my display when it's in power down mode. I have gone into device manager and deselected (under mouse) the Allow This Device To Wake The Computer option but that doesn't work.

This is for Windows 7 64 Bit.

Short answer: Not possible. I know it's pretty irritating. What I do is turn the mouse upside down/unplug it. That's the only way.

I set the mouse not to wake up my computer, and that's great.. I do like to wake it with the keyboard though so I left that on.. What I would be happy to do now is to keep my keyboard from turning on my computer when I turn it all the way off.. I'd like just the button on the front to do that. ...
