No matter what I tried, I can't get my computer to stay in sleep mode. I have disabled what devices wake my computer, but oddly, its like it dose not save the option.


I want to have my keyboard only awake my computer from sleep mode, however, I have uncheck the option to allow my mouse to wake the device but nothing seems to work.

What can I do?

Check the CMOS/BIOS Setup to see if there is anything in there such as "Wake on LAN" etc., that also will need to be disabled.

Thank you! I will attempt to access this area.

Also, here is another thing I noticed: I can't keep my PC to stay in sleep mode when I click "sleep mode"; however, it will stay in sleep mode when it hasn't been used in 30 minutes (the time I set to allow my PC to enter sleep mode from inactivity).
