I have an ASRock H670 STEEL LEGEND motherboard and I enabled the "USB Power on keyboard / remote" to turn it on from my keyboard. This is working however I have "USB Mouse Power On" disabled and yet I can still turn it on with my mouse. I don't know why this is happening but I have a Razor Orchi v2 and I'm using the 2.4 dongle setting. The only thing that I can think of is that it thinks it's a remote for it. Is there a way to disable this from turning it on but keeping the keyboard? It's kind of annoying that it turns on with just a single mouse movement. Maybe there is something in Windows that I'm missing?

A lot of "Gaming" mouses use controller chips that behave more like keyboards than
standard mouses. It's how they are able to interpret macros etc. The motherboard
basically thinks the mouse is a "keyboard like device". I am not sure how one would
go about disabling it without also disabling keyboard power on. I don't really use
the feature myself so haven't played with it much. It may be worth reaching out
to ASRock and asking them directly:" rel="nofollow -
