    How to turn off wake up on USB in Vista

    Hello!

    When my computer is in sleep mode it wakes up, when I'm pluging or unpluging
    USB device, otherwise in XP it continues to sleep. How could I turn automatic
    wake up off? I don't want to install XP again. It is very important to me,
    because I charge my cell phone using USB cable, and autowakeup I don't need.

    My motherboard is ASUS P5LD2 with 945P Chipset, BIOS version 1804, sleep
    mode is S3 (maybe).

    THX for reading.


    From Russia with love, Andrew. :-)

    RE: How to turn off wake up on USB in Vista

    Andrew,

    The following is a copy of a Microsoft article (copied most of it):

    The computer wakes when you remove a device from a computer that is running
    Windows Vista.

    View products that this article applies to. Article ID : 935267 Last Review
    : April 3, 2007 Revision : 1.0\

    SYMPTOMS
    When you remove a device from a Windows Vista-based computer that is asleep,
    the computer wakes. For example, the computer wakes when you remove a USB
    keyboard or a USB mouse.

    You may not notice when a portable computer that has its lid closed has
    awakened. Therefore, battery power may be consumed.
    Back to the top

    CAUSE
    This problem occurs because the default configuration of a device in Windows
    Vista lets it wake the computer.
    Back to the top

    WORKAROUND
    To work around this problem, use Device Manager to prevent the device from
    waking the computer. To do this, follow these steps:1. Click Start, type
    devmgmt.msc in the Start Search box, and then click devmgmt.msc in the
    Programs list.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type
    your password, or click Continue.
    2. In Device Manager, right-click the device, and then click Properties.

    Note To find a USB keyboard or a USB mouse, expand Human Interface Devices.
    3. Click the Power Management tab.
    4. Click to clear the Allow this device to wake the computer check box.
    5. Click OK.

    freddy,

    There is no such option for all of the devices, only for mouse, keyboard,
    build-in modem. Here is screehshot:

    Andrew,

    Yes, not all devices have a power option in its Properties, but some do, and
    I was hoping that your device did. for instance, on my system, the NIC
    (under Network adapters) also has such a tab for power settings, so there are
    more possibilities than keyboard and mouse.

    In Device Manager, under Universal Serial Bus Controllers, all the USB Root
    Hubs have a Power tab. I don't know whether your issue can be addressed by
    checking how those are set, but you can look it over to see what happens.

    Off hand, I don't know of any updates specifically for addressing your
    problem, but make sure you have downloaded all the updates available on the
    Microsoft update site. You can try using google to search the Internet. You
    never know whether someone has posted a solution. Anyone else?

    freddy,

    I found the same problem here:
    http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/com...=en-us&m=1&p=1 , but there were no solution too.
    I tried Google.ru, yandex.ru (in Russian), but search returned little
    results and they contained information like you game me.

    USB Root Hubs have a Power tab, but "Allow this device to wake the computer"
    is unchecked there and it is grey, so i can't change it.

    Additionaly I tried look through registry and discovered, that dword
    "WaitWakeEnabled" controls exactly this function. But by default it is
    located only in keys, where this function is available in Device Manager,
    adding it to other devices keys changed nothing.

    Maybe I should contact developers? How can I do it?

    Thanks for answering.

    Some updates concerning USB I downloaded, but they did nothing.

    Andrew,

    I'm sorry you can't configure your computer to get the behavior you desire.
    I'm out of ideas, so I can't provide any more guidance. My last word: If I
    had this problem, I would only plug/unplug USB devices while the computer was
    awake. Can you do your work that way. I give up.

    Andrew,

    Sometimes I have an idea after I say I have no more ideas: For example,
    review your BIOS settings for any configuration that enables "wake on"
    situations. If you have any such situations, disable them.

    In addition, review your settings in Control Panel > Power. If you find any
    event configured to wake your computer, deselect that setting.

    If you need to refresh your knowledge about power management, use Windows
    Help and Support under Start. Launch that and search on Power Settings, or
    something similar. You'll find plenty of information about power management
    in Vista.

    Updating BIOS to the most recent version should also be considered. Updated
    BIOS is important to be able to interface with the demanding Vista
    requirements.

    If you have already completed any of these suggestions, please disregard
    those comments that don't apply.

    There is only power up options, and all of them are disabled. I reviewed
    every USB and Power setting, but I didn't find anything helpfull.

    > In addition, review your settings in Control Panel > Power. If you find any

    There is nothing conserning wake up by USB.

    I looked it though several times...
