Cannot Disable Keyboard Wake From Sleep


I have an asus n80vn notebook. I want to be able to wake up my notebook only by pressing the power button or the sleep button. I do not want any other keyboard key to wake my computer from sleep. Currently, pressing any key on the keyboard will wake my computer from sleep.

Here's what i've already tried:

1. Go to device manager -> keyboards -> properties -> power management -> uncheck "allow this device to wake the computer" why it doesn't work : there is no power management tab in my keyboard driver's properties window. I currently have four entries under "keyboards in the device manager:

Keyboard device filter
Microsoft ehome mcir 109 keyboard
Microsoft ehome mcir keyboard
Microsoft ehome remote control keyboard keys
There is no power management tab in any of these!

2. Go into bios, disable "wake on keyboard" why it doesn't work: there is no "wake on keyboard" option, nor anything similar, in my bios.

3. Open a command window, use the "powercfg -devicedisablewake" command to disable waking from the keyboard. Why it doesn't work: "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" does not report any devices currently set up to wake my computer from sleep. Furthermore, "powercfg -devicequery wake_programmable" only reports that my network card and my usb mouse are capable of being set to wake my computer from sleep (both are currently set not to wake the computer); it makes no mention of the keyboard.

I'm resigned to the idea that i will need to edit my registry, replace my keyboard drivers, or something equally intensive to prevent my keyboard from waking my computer, but i definitely want to do so. If it matters, i have the computer set only to go into s3 sleep, and have disabled hibernation. Any ideas?

Sata Drive Doesn't Wake From Sleep

Have a clean install, firmware and all drivers are up to date. Windows 7 enterprise, x64
2 hard drives are installed in the system - 120 gb intel ssd with os install and 2tb wd caviar green which is used as a misc. File storage drive-system works fine until pc goes into sleep mode. If the pc wakes from sleep the 2tb drive is not accessible and does not appear under my computer found an article referencing a hotfix: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977178/, however i can't figure out what to download. The following are the files available as a download in the hotfix request page:

Windows 7/windowsserver 2008 r2   all (global)  x86   sp1fix299433 windows 7/windowsserver 2008 r2all (global)x64sp1fix306215 windows 7/windowsserver 2008 r2all (global)x64sp1fix299433 windows 7/windowsserver 2008 r2all (global)ia64sp1fix299433 windows 7/windowsserver 2008 r2all (global)ia64sp1fix306215  

Then there is a reference to manifest files (. Manifest) and the mum files (. Mum), as well as additional files for all supported x86-based versions of windows 7 what exactly do i need to download and install?

Keyboard Dead During Sleep Mode

To date i've been impressed with windows 7. I now have an issue that will have me moving to unix or back to windows xp if i cannot find a resolution quickly. I noticed recently when the pc was asleep that i couldn't wake it using [usb] kbd or [ps/2] mouse.

Pressing caps lock on keyboard gives no result as if power to the kbd has been removed. The only way i am able to get out of sleep mode is to press the front-panel reset button. I'm loathe to do that too often. I'm not aware of any changes made to the computer that coincided with this problem starting. Any ideas what could be going on here? Where do you start troubleshooting if the keyboard and mouse are unresponsive?

Keyboard Does Not Work After Sleep / Hibernate

After i updated to windows 7 (clean install from xp) my keyboard (standard ps/2) will stop working after my pc goes into sleep or hibernate. I changed the keyboard settings to "allow this device to wake computer", which works for sleep mode. However, once the computer goes into hibernate the keyboard will once again not work and the "allow this device to wake computer" box is no longer checked. The drivers are up to date. Is there a fix or work around for this?

Keyboard / Mouse Inactive After Monitor Goes Into Sleep Mode

I seem to be having a problem with both the keyboard and mouse going inactive after my monitor goes into a "sleep" mode and is "woke-up". The mouse works for a few seconds after that and then "freezes& if i unselected the "turn monitor off after 1 hour", then i never experience the problem. I'd like to select "after 1 hour" as i leave my pc on constantly. I have the most recent drivers for my monitor (acer al2216w), am using a logitech "access" keyboard and ms wheel mouse optical usb. The drivers for the keyboard and mouse were installed by windows 7.

Monitor Wont Wake Up

I installed windows 7 a week ago and my computer would go to sleep properly (ie: one click of the power button and everything was up and running on the desktop). In the last few days however, my monitor will not wake up. Just stays off and the status light is blinking like it is not communicating with my pc. The only way to get it running is by manually powering down on the pc tower. Not sure if i changed a setting but have checked power settings and they seem to be what they were when everything was fine.

Getting Wake On Lan To Work

I can't get wake on lan to work on either of two different windows 7 computers. In both cases, the bios supports wol, and i've set it to do so. I've configured both network adapters to allow computer to turn off hardware to save power/allow wake on lan/only wake up based on magic packet (setting the "allow computer to turn off hardware to save power" is required to let the other two options be set).
I've tried several different wol clients without success. I've tried turning off the windows firewall on the machine i'm using to generate the magic packets. That has no effect, either. What's the trick to getting wol to work under windows 7?

Cannot Disable Dep

About a year ago i was having issues with dep preventing some of my programs from running. Within the last three months, however, dep has been shutting down several of my programs when i thought that it was disabled. Some of them get a message at the bottom left saying that dep shut them down, others get a pop up that reads "protection stub has stopped working, " and close. The list of programs affected includes solidworks, qtcreator, openoffice, java update, zoo tycoon 2, and rise of nations.

When i went to system->advanced system settings->advanced->performance settings->data execution prevention, all of the settings were grayed out. I attempted to re-enable dep by running bcdedit.exe /set{current} nx alwayson. Despite reporting completion, this did not solve my problem. I tried the same command but with optin and alwaysoff, but nothing changed, even after a reboot and using safe mode. Using wmic os get dataexecutionprevention_supportpolicy, i found that it was always set to 1, which means alwayson. This lends me to believe that the bcdedit tool is not working correctly.

I even system restored to my earliest restore point, but none of the dep related settings were affected, and the problem remains. Is there any other way to diagnose this problem further, or is there another way to disable dep?

How Can I Disable / Remove Photoviewer?

I have a canon powershot. It has a 16gb sdhc card - which the reader on my dell 2407fp does not recognize. No driver updates available either. Therefore, i plug the camera directly into a desktop usb port to view photos. Irfanview is my default image editor but when i click a pic in explorer the default is to preview (not open) and this function is automatically performed by (ugh) photoviewer - which is possibly the worst slowest most cumbersome image prog ever foisted upon the public at large. This driving me over the edge! How can i disable /remove photoviewer from my life?

Mouse Click Ability Disable

I have a 1. 2 year-old daughter who likes to discover my laptop whenever possible. Thing is, that she is able to disable the mouse click ability just by sweeping over the keyboard; e.g. 30-40 keys pressed for a minute or two. Things do work, mouse moves, but when i go over something, it doesn't show any change or reaction for the mouse. It is if the mouse doesn't exist in the same reality as the computer -> a ghostly mouse.

It sometimes goes over in couple of minutes. Other times it stays until i restart the whole system. Today i tried ctrl+alt+del and at first there was no mouse activity either, but ~10 seconds it started working again. Any tips? How to fix-it or know the specific reason. P. S. Windows 7 pro x64

Disable Ie Add-on Via Group Policy

My organization recently began deploying sophos antivirus on our windows 7 32-bit workstations. After deploying to a subset of our machines, we encountered an issue where the sophos browser helper object (bho) prevented certain intranet pages from displaying. Sure enough, disabling the sophos add-on would then allow affected users to view the web page. I would like to disable this add-on on all machines for the time being, with the end goal of enabling it when sophos updates their bho to where it doesn't block content on our intranet.

I have attempted disabling the add-on by using group policy. The method i used is documented here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883256. I've also attempted to disable the add-on by editing the registry per the same kb article, but i haven't had success with this method, either. Do you have any suggestions on what i can do to disable this add-on organization-wide while still allowing the ability to enable it later?

How To Disable Process Wlcomm.exe?

I need to lighten the load off my lower end e5200 processor. Wlcomm.exe seems to use quite a bit of memory.

How can  prevent wlcomm.exe from starting up when i boot windows?I did uninstall windows live messenger since wlcomm.exe has something to do with the program. However, whenever i boot window's live mail, the process starts again.

Disable Or Remove Raid 1 Mirror

How can i disable or remove raid 1 mirror in windows 7? I have just bought a new desktop with windows 7. I bought it on-line, and ticked the box marked "raid 1 mirror" without understanding properly what it meant. My machine is now here, and of course one hard disk is partitioned into two, whilst the other is invisible on my sytem and, i assume, just a copy of the data on disk one.

Now that i know what raid is, i realize i don't need it, and would like to have regular use of my two hard discs. I have the 64-bit windows 7 disc so can simply re-install windows 7 if need be, if that is the answer, but would welcome nice clear advice, please.

Cannot Disable Program Compatibility Assistant

I'm hoping someone can provide me with a way to disable the program compatibility assistant. I had this same problem during the beta, but of course during beta testing i was using windows 7 ultimate. First off let me begin by pointing out that i am running using windows 7 home premium.

That said, i realize this means that the most common solution, using local group policy editor to disable the program compatibility assistant will not work, as home premium does not include gpedit. Msc.

Now this is the confusing part, at least for me. I found an alternative solution specifically meant to address this limitation. I was directed to access services, and upon locating program compatibility assistant service, stop the service and then disable it (via properties for that service). I did exactly that. It's stopped and the startup type is "disabled". I even rebooted.

Now here is the part that confuses me. It still comes up. How can it do that when i have the service stopped? Is it another aspect of windows 7 security i'm unaware of that needs to be disabled?

As a note, when i attempted to install the software in question i did choose to "run as administrator", just in case, and that still had no benefit. If anyone knows what i should do, including instructions on editing my registry, let me know.

Disable Aero Temporarily Using Dwmapi

I am running windows 7 64 bit on a sony vaio z45. Unfortunately i need sometimes temporarily at least to disable aero and the re-enable it. There are plenty of forums suggesting that rundll32 dwmapi with #102 or #104 to switch the effects off or on. However, this seems to have absolutely no effect on my system and i need either to switch the themes off entriely ("net stop themes") or to use uxsms.
I am just curious why the (well documented and frequently used) dwmapi call does not work on my system.

How To Stop / Disable Win 7 Updates ?

In windows 7, my outlook ceases to work every time the computer updates. I have tried reinstalling outlook, to no avail. So i disabled updates. Annoyingly, although the updates are completely disabled, my computer still updates frequently, and i now have to restore the system 2-3 times a week just to be able to use outlook. I would like to know if there is a way to really disable all updates in windows 7. Also, if anyone else experiences outlook failures with updates, is there any solution?

How To Disable Group Policy Restrictions ?

When i try to change some features/functions on my win7 system, the operating system blocks the attempts, telling me that the "group policy" prevents me from doing what i want and to consult my "system administrator. " Since my home doesn't have a system administrator or it department, this suggestion is useless. The latest incident was when i tried to add/change one of the desktop gadgets. When i research the group policy problem online, i'm advised to run the gpedit. Msc program but that results in an error, "mmc could not create the snap-in. "

How can i get gpedit. Msc to work or to disable the group policy restrictions on my win7 home premium system? (I've already set the uac level to "none" and my user profile has administrator's rights. )

Updates Disable Usb Network Adapter

I recently installed windows 7 pro x64, at first everything worked fine however after running windows update my network adapter stopped functioning.network connections in the control panel no longer lists my adapter but the device manager tells me that everything is working properly. The icon by the clock detects neither any wi-fi networks or even the adapter. I have tried this with two different ones a rosewill and a zonet with the same results. Does anyone know if this is a specific update problem or is it a device driver problem?

Disable Auto Hide Taskbar From Getting Focus

How do i disable an auto-hidden taskbar from gaining focus when a program opens or requires input?
"Foreground flash count" isn't the answer because that just changes the number of times that the taskbar icon blinks. Foreground-lock-timeout isn't a fix either because that's just a delay before the program steals focus. I want to completely disable/disallow a program icon in the taskbar from gaining focus-ever. Why? Because i don't like the auto-hidden taskbar taking focus, appearing and maintaining that focus until i switch over to the program that has just opened or wants input.

Disable Button In Device Manager Greyed Out

I am trying to disable a device in device manager of windows 7 64-bit pro. But the button is greyed out and in the drop down list (if i right click on the device) the option to disable is also not available. Is there a way to get that option back?

This is for the touchpad of my sony laptop. I want to use a little software i found that can automatically enable/disable the touchpad depending on the presence of an external mouse. But this software wants to disable the touchpad. But it can't because the option is missing from device manager.

Cannot Disable Write Caching On Usb Flash

Brief intro: i have a problem with my windows 7. It exists since the windows 7 rc (7100) and it's also on my windows 7 home premium (7600). It also appears to be in both the x86 and x64 version of the system, regardless of the computer i use.

Problem: whenever i start writing files onto my usb drive, it starts filling up my ram and also completely slows down windows 7 as the hard drive is being read from at its maximum speed. It usually fills about 500-600 mb of my ram. Until the file is completely written onto the device, the ram is being occupied. As the file manager i use to copy files with (be it windows explorer or total commander) reports the copy process is at 99%, the amount of occupied ram gradually starts to decrease until all of it is written onto the device, at which point the process of copying finally finishes.

I'd rather completely disable the write-caching to this device, as it would not affect the speed of the copy process and it wouldn't prevent me from using windows 7 since the primary harddrive ( the source of the file i am trying to copy ) would not be strained to its maximum capabilities by having to read the file into the ram write-cache.

I tried setting the usb drive in my device manager for quick removal, but that does not affect anything at all. I am a very advanced user, so do not be afraid to assume or suggest registry edits or other things.

Used software

Os: windows 7 rc x64 / windows 7 rc 32 / windows 7 home premium x64
File manager for the copy process: windows explorer / total commander

Used hardware

As i've stated before - this happens with more computers than just one, but i'll just post the details of my main pc here.

Mb: gigabyte ex58-ud5
Cpu: core i7 920
Ram: kingston hyperx ddr3 6gb (triple channel)
Gfx: nvidia gtx295
Hdd: samsung spinpoint f1, 1tb, sata ii, 32mb cache (running in ahci mode)

Usb flash : patriot xt 32gb, filesystem ntfs. Write speed ~9-10mb/s, read speed 27-31mb/s.
