I use to have my computer set up to enter a kind of sleep when I hit the power button (physical) or the sleep button on my keyboard. The computer would only be turned back on with a physical push to the power button (mouse and keyboard had no affect). Computer would load right back up to the screen it was shut down at, no BIOS or Win splash screen.

Anyone know what I'm talking about and how to re-enable it?

That's just normal sleep, computer reactivated if the mouse is moved.

And no, Win 7 was from an upgrade disk.

Google is the first option I usually turn to, but the wording would be difficult...

I'll try that, but it seems like normal hibernation (restoring involves a BIOS and Win splash screen)

If anyone is interested, here's how to do this.

Enable "Sleep" Mode.
Type "Mouse" into the search (Start -> "Mouse")
Click Mouse under Control Panel
Goto the Hardware Tab
For each hardware listing:
Properties ->
Change Settings ->
Power Management
Uncheck "Allow This Device To Wake The Computer"

Replace "Mouse" with Keyboard and repeat.
