    Win 7 + Sleep Mode => Selectively disable usb devices from waking?

    Anyone know if it is possible to selectively disable USB devices from waking the machine while in sleep mode (as a simple example: say I wanted a USB keyboard to be able to wake the machine, but not a USB mouse)?

    Right click the device in Device Manager, select the Power Management tab and untick the "Allow this device to wake the computer" box.

    Cheers

    Right click on my computer -> Manage -> Device Manager -> Mice and Other -> Right click -> Properties -> Power management -> Allow this device to wake the computer
