Do you put your computer to sleep often? Do you ever accidently touch the mouse and all the sudden find your computer just woke up? Well, to me I don’t purposely to put my computer into sleep often, but instead, it sleeps by itself when I don’t use it for over 30 minutes. When that happens, chances are I don’t really need to use the computer at the moment. But I often I ended up waking up the computer when I try to move around the stuff on my desk, that lead to the mouse to move and eventually lead to the computer to start waking up.
So here is how you can stop the mouse trigger your PC from sleep. This works on both Windows 7 and Vista.
First, go to start menu search “Mouse.”
Click the first result under Control Panel
Go to Hardware tab > Double Click the mouse in the list > Power Management > Uncheck the “Allow this device to wake the computer.”
That’s it. Once you have unchecked this option, you don’t have to worry about accidently touched your mouse while your computer is on sleep anymore.
