Mouse wakes computer from deep sleep?

In an earlier thread, someone said you should stop the mouse from
waking the computer. I thought that was a great solution.
Unfortunately, using Windows 81, the mouse just woke the computer
from deep sleep anyway. I immediately checked the mouse setting
"Allow this device to wake the computer" and it was in fact
unchecked. So how do you accomplish that?

Control Panel > Mouse > Hardware > Properties > Change Settings >
Power Management... didn't work. Does that work for anybody else?

Turn the mouse upside down.

I just double checked. There are two identical settings under Mouse
Properties > Hardware. Now the other setting is unchecked. That one
is the obvious lead. Assume the problem is solved unless I post
again.

But then I'd have to wear tinfoil glasses.

What do you mean from a "Deep Sleep". As far as I know there is a
Sleep Mode (aright click on the desktop MS Icon, shut down & sign out.
Sleep) and Hibernate.


If you turn off the computer. (right click on the desktop MS Icon, shut
down & sign out. Shut down ) the mouse will not wake the computer.

See if you have more than one mouse listed in the control panel.
