Windows 7: Wake on keyboard and mouse not staying disabled, why?

Wake on keyboard and mouse not staying disabled, why?

In device manager I changed the settings for wake on keyboard and mouse (diasabled them). Occasionally I can still wake with KB/M and then I look and see the box has become unchecked. Any ideas why? Doesn't happen often but it is annoying when it does.

I helped somneone a few weeks ago with same mouse issue.

Did you do this in the Control Panel or also in Device Manager ?

Check the later.

It rarely happens anyways, probably when something updates and resets some settings, I am not too worried about it now.

Did you take a look at BIOS settings?!...

I have a setting in the keyboard section that allows it to wake up on a key press.

Your problem happens to me when I disconnect my keyboard. If I unplug it, I have to change the setting back again.
