Windows 7 Ultimate X64
pc resumes with keyboard press

when i hibernate my pc running win7 ultimate 64 it does it quickly but then when i press the keyboard it turns on and this isnt good because i have a cat who likes to sit in awkward places such as the keyboard turning it on in the middle of the night and me not realising it until i get home from school the following day.

long story short how do i stop it resuming when the keyboard is pressed?
