Sometimes my computer powers up after an automatic standby just by walking
into the room, sometimes I have to press a key. (I have it set to hibernate
quite quickly so it should be hibernating. My laptop with windowsXP
hibernated ok but this is a new desktop). It's giving me the creeps.
Is there a setting for 'Only wake if I press a key'?

More about : power

If your floor is bouncy enough, walking into the room may make the mouse
bounce enough to do it. It does for me sometimes.
