Topic says all. Specs in the sig.


Why would my computer wake up from sleep randomly? My mouse usually don't work unless you unplug and plug it back in (any solution you know of?).

My keyboard is under the desk on drawer. So how can it be one of my cats just happen to walk over my keyboard and boots up my computer when its actually under the desk.

This is the second time. I tried looking in my Power options, and I don't find anything that relates to waking up? I hope this isn't a hardware problem. :|

Wake On Lan probably. Yurn it off in BIOS, sometimes you have to also do it in Windows itself under network card properties in Device Manager. Some motherboards also my have a jumper to force it off no matter what.

I also had a motherboard once that had Wake On USB jumpers, it would wake if i had any USB device plugged in. I changed the jumper and it never woke on it's own again.
