    Please help! I have recently bought a new PC for my girlfriend, a Packard Bell iMedia 2459. We bought a Microsoft optical wireless mouse and keyboard set to go with it, which works perfectly. The weird thing is that when the computer is turned off (not hibernating, but properly shut down), if you move the mouse at all, the computer springs to life and starts booting up.

    If anyone can suggest anything to try to stop this from happening, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you, Jon.

    Hello and welcome to TGS
    In bios there should be an option to disable this feature.
    It probably located in the boot section of bios
    BTW this feature is not a default option, it has been enabled manually

    Shoot that mouse, it's evil.

    like already mentioned it is either a setting in BIOS that would wake the PC up. Either Lan wake up or something else that has a wake up feature. Did you check in your Power settings to be sure there isn't something in there that is checked to hibernate when you shut down?
