Emm, no...

"G:\>powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
Standard PS/2 Keyboard
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller"

I powered of the computer, then unplugged the usb connection *fans ramped up of course on restart*

Booted into Windows, put it to sleep and it was dormant :) Tried 2,3 times and it remained on standby.

Good news in sorts but weird how windows didn't report it. Annoyingly the mouse still can wake the computer despite disabling all the settings I can find to prevent it waking my computer but that's another issue.

Sometimes the BIOS may have a setting that will allow the mouse or keyboard to wake the computer that will override what is set in Windows.

I knew about that setting but just to be sure I just checked it and it was disabled. (power-on with mouse) Tried with keyboard and the computer wouldn't wake unless it was enabled, it's wakes regardless the settings with the mouse. Am guessing the bios doesn't see the mouse as a mouse as it's a wireless Logitech mouse.

Any idea upon the sleep issue? How to stop the device from waking my pc, the powercfg disable wake command just reports back with "you do not have permission to enable or disable device wake".

Thanks.

Unfortunately, the disable wake command will not work unless the device was listed as able to wake the computer.

All the settings for it look correct, so I'm not sure what else would prevent it from either waking the PC like that either other than unplugging it. You might try a different USB port to see if it may make a difference. I'm not sure it will though.

Thanks Brink, I tried switching headers. Nothing .

I will post if I find a solution, It isn't the worst problem to have anyway.

Thanks for the help.

Please do. I'm curious as to why it's doing this as well.

I am pleased to confirm it has stopped, I am sad to report that I don't fully understand how but it is certainly an OS fault with its driver and maybe even fan speed issues. (BIOS reports fan speed issues, it's disabled in BIOS. Still reports fan speed to OS)

I disabled everything, I mean everything that could even attempt to wake my computer and then just enabled ps2 keyboard and NIC WOL and it did the trick. Annoyingly there isn't an option to disable the Antec CC wake but it seems to of stopped.

That's great news. Hopefully, it will stay that way.

Have missed a bit here so did you try a PS/2 device at all?

Nope, it says here in my first post and admittedly it's not obvious but it's there.
