I just started encountering the most bizarre issue i have ever seen with my computer. normally I wake up my computer from sleep mode by clicking the mouse or pressing a key on the keyboard.

 

Now there is a common issue where changing power settings can cause the mouse and keyboard to not be able to wake up the computer but my issue is just plain bizarre.

 

Out of the blue my computer developed a strange bug where when I click the mouse or Press a key the computer will wake up from standby mode and than after a minute or so it will immediately go back into sleep mode and it will keep doing this repeatedly.

 

On the other hand if i press the power button the computer will wake up normally and stay on.

 

I am at my wits end i have checked my UEFI settings and sure enough USB mouse and keyboard is set to wake the computer and in device manager all the relevant drivers have the allow this device to wake the computer box checked.

 

So right now i need to figure out what is triggering the computer to go back into sleep mode when woken up by the keyboard/mouse but not when it is woken up with the power button.

[wild guess]

The mouse and random key are sending a double click.

I cant imagine a double click would cause the computer to imediatly go back to sleep additionally if the keyboard/mouse were sticking and sending double keys it would be apparent when typing. also i normally put my computer to sleep by tapping the power button. if the power button was sticking than the computer would turn off instead of going to sleep as it would be the same as holding it down

as I said - a wild guess

I've had 'sticky' keys on things before and they were not consistant.

Sorry

yes but what i am saying is that the computer will wake up and than go right back to sleep a stuck key will not do that.

 

i press say space bar when the computer is sleeping. it responds immediately boots up and than goes back to sleep. my keyboard does not even have a sleep button so it cannot be stuck also if there was a stuck sleep button the computer would go back to sleep even when i wake it using the power button but as stated in the OP the power button will wake up the computer normally. but baring the possibility of the non existent sleep button being stuck a double keystroke is physically incapable of resulting in this behavior.

I'd be thinking about a PSU issue myself...and replacing the current one with another for a short test.

mikeloeven,

I'm not suggesting a stuck key - that would present a whole different set of symptoms

Contacts can wear out or their components can weaken. We're talking imperfect machjines being made and used by imperfect people

Check out Louis' suggestion. He's been at this longer than I have and the wisdom of his experiences comes through clearly
