I tried every outlet and still get the same results. I do have the PC connected via a surge protector which is this one:

So, should I be worried about this and how do I fix the situation without returning the compact refrigerator for a new one [only a month old]?

if you plug PC into AVR device it should stop any waking all together

for the waking from sleep part it bit puzzling, question does PC simply wake up or does it restart?
voltage drops from refrigerator should not harm anything, PSU designed to handle that.

also for sleeping problem try and go Control Panel>System>Device Management
in there find your mouse right click and select properties>Power Management tab

Unchecked Allow this device to wake the computer do same for keyboard

it could be that refrigerator shakes your mouse waking PC up, also wake by mouse very unpredictable as well

1. It only wakes up from sleep every time

2. My PSU is Corsair 850TXV2. Is that good enough to handle the PC turning on from sleep cuz of refrigerator?

3. My pc is on a different room than the refrigerator and I did turn off the power management [except the keyboard since I do need that to turn pc on from sleep]
