View Full Version : Keyboard wakes up ASUS Rogue out of its nap and I don't want that

01-19-2017, 01:17 AM
I have an ASUS Rogue Republic of Gamers with Windows 10 on board. For some strange reason (and weird also) I cannot stop the keyboard from waking the laptop out of sleep.
I've gone into Device Manager, Keyboard, Properties, Power Management and unchecked "allow this Device to wake the computer." I've rebooted the machine but this still does not stop the keyboard from waking the computer out of sleep.
I've gone into the BIOS but can see nothing there that gives me any option to overcome this unhappy problem. If you folks have got some advice or suggestions, I'm listening or is that looking.

C'mon!!! You can't convince me no one on this forum doesn't have an answer or even an idea for this question! What happens on here if something difficult comes up???

device manager , hid , power options , uncheck allow this device to wake up the computer

you will have to find out the right one because asus installs a ton of devices there, just do trial and error

Thanks for the reply. If you read my original post, you'll see I've already unchecked this. There are two listed under Keyboard and only one gives me the option of unchecking. I've done that several weeks back but this does not change anything, including after a reboot. If you've got something else to suggest, I'll appreciate your help.

It works, but the device is in keyboards - HID Keyboard .. check the pic 61996

Again thanks for the effort. When I go there and to Hardware ID's, the "allow this device to wake up the computer" is also unchecked. I've gone down through the list and each time, it is unchecked in each case. Remember, I've got a laptop. And under Device Manager, Keyboard, I have two listings there. The second one is called "Keyboard Device Filter" and does not give me the option of "Power Management." I'm thinking you've got something else in mind so I'll wait for your expertise.

try the following
1. open a command prompt as admin
2. type "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed": your keyboard should be listed there
3. then type "powercfg -devicedisablewake "keyboardname"

Here's the message I've gotten in the past and still do trying this command. It is as follows -
"Unable to perform operation. An unexpected error (0x490) has occurred. Element not found."

Remember, this is a lapboard keyboard.

I should have mentioned. When I type in "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" I get this ...
"Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse (Mouse and Keyboard Center"
There is nothing in this that gives me any options as to stopping the Keyboard from waking the laptop.

then try
powercfg /devicequery wake_programmable
if the keyboard is not listed, then it is not user-cobfigurable

The only thing I see in this list with regards to the Keyboard is as follows,
HID Keyboard Device (001)
Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse (Mouse and Keyboard Center)
I would gather from this that this Keyboard is non-configurable. Would you agree?

I'm sorry for asking, but why would you not want the keyboard to wake your laptop from sleep?

Read earlier in my postings. Don't have to be sorry for the question. :-)

O yea O yea, please all do take your stations as I will unload on you the earliest and latest update as to why the keyboard wakes up the computer and nothing you nor I can do about it. It is simply because the ASUS Rogue is not geared to stop this exciting event from happening. In other words, there is no way according to ASUS Support that we can do that. With that, let's do move on to other great things, such as why do some laptops explode right into their users faces.
