External mouse wakes Yoga 710 when lid is closed and "lid close" is set to Sleep

Hi,

I close the lid, the 710 sleeps. I move the external mouse, the 710 wakes.

 

No other laptop I've got does that, I'd consider it a bug.

 

As a work-around you can untick "Allow this device to wake the computer", on the Power Management tab of the HIB-Compliant Mouse properties dialog. Now the mouse won't wake the laptop when the lid is closed, or open of course, which is not ideal.

 

I then changed the wireless mouse, replacing an old Logitech with a new JETech 2.4GHz 0885, the untick was repeated but the mouse still woke the 710. Luckily a documented oddity it seems and unticking "Allow this device to wake the computer" for the HID Keyboard fixed the problem. No idea why one mouse needed this but not the other one.

 

Is this problem of an external mouse waking a closed laptop specific to this model I wonder, and is it likely to get fixed?

 

Cheers
