Can't turn off Wake Using This Device

#1 Post by MikalE » Wed Oct 14, 2020 10:24 am

Every time I move the USB mouse for my T500 it wakes from sleep. I have turned the mouse off in the device manager when asleep, not allowing it to wake the computer if moved.

Still it does this. I also can't seem to turn it off on my T520 either. The setting in the device manager have been double checked and they are OFF.

The only system this seems to have worked on properly is my A31p. That mouse will not wake the computer if moved.

Is this a Windows 7 issue?

Hi , Have you checked your bios? Under advanced(if you have) or power settings on newer models you may see settings about wake up from sleep including USB devices.
Also windows logs an event everytime unit wakes up from sleep. You can see these under windows event viewer. (If you need to check if it's your USB mouse for sure)
Last wake up command is RunAs Admin/CMD/powercfg -lastwake
Apart from disabling USB wake this device from sleep, you can also disable wake timers about your power plan. Select power plan/change advanced settings/sleep/allow wake timers /battery & ac /disable
