When my laptop goes to suspend, a slight mouse movement wakes my laptop up. This is bad when I am packing my pc into my bag and accidentally move my mouse. PC stays up during the ride consuming battery. So there is already this topic but it did not help: previously asked question

I made sure all usb devices are disabled to wake up:

Device  S-state   Status   Sysfs node
LID   S4    *enabled 
SLPB      S3    *enabled 
IGBE      S4    *disabled  pci:0000:00:19.0
EXP2      S4    *disabled  pci:0000:00:1c.1
XHCI      S3    *disabled  pci:0000:00:14.0
EHC1      S3    *disabled  pci:0000:00:1d.0

by echoing to the /proc/acpi/wakeup the device names EHC1 and XHCI in /etc/rc.local

Also I have identified the device with lsusb and made sure

cat /sys/bus/usb/devices/2-6/power/wakeup

returned disabled.

I don't know how else I can disable it. I am using Lenovo T450s with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.


Edit: I am using Fujitsu wireless mouse WI610.

  • Can't you turn off the mouse when not using it? Or, if it has a USB receiver, remove that before moving. Not very high tech, but it is what it is. Mar 16, 2016 at 23:55

  • Ah, sorry, retracted my vote. Mar 17, 2016 at 5:22
  • Thanks Marty, yes that is a workaround. But this in 2016 with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS this should not be any issue! Besides, very often I forget to remove the tiny USB wireless dongle from my laptop, especially when I am in hurry. Mar 17, 2016 at 10:14
  • Hi @ScottStensland , I have already mentioned that question. But none of the solutions there helped me. Mar 17, 2016 at 13:46

On my Ubuntu 16.04 x64 ASUS ZenBook UX430UA works the following:

# Check
more /proc/acpi/wakeup
grep --color -E '|enabled'  /sys/bus/usb/devices/*/power/wakeup

and then disable routine

# Disable
for f in /sys/bus/usb/devices/*/power/wakeup
   echo "disabled" > $f

In order to disable after reboot, add disable routine into /etc/rc.local before exit 0 line.
