Default Computer Boots-up due to moving the mouse after shutdowm - Why ?

I installed new wireless mouse and keyboard, with wireless receiver that
plugs into a USB port.
During install Windows XP recognised the USB device and installed the
necessary driver etc - Keyboard & mouse works good.

BUT ... Now after full windows shutdown, the computer will boot-up by simply
moving the mouse by the smallest amount.
A key press or mouse click will have the same effect.
I understand the difference between Shutdown, Suspend, Hibernate, and
Standby but this mouse movement induced Boot up problem occurs after a full
Shutdown.

No software disc came with the new keyboard & mouse so there is no other
software involved.

Any ideas why this might be happening and how to stop it ?
Thanks

"crush mouse with hammer" -- problem solved :-)

Seriously, take a look in Device Manager. The wireless mouse might
show up as one or two devices (maybe the wireless part has it's own
entry?). On devices qualified to bring a computer out of standby,
there is a Power Management tab in the properties of the device. For
example, my keyboard has this tick box -

"Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby"

You could try playing with that setting. Perhaps the wireless
receiver has such a setting.

At one time, the solution to this problem was simpler. Five years
ago, motherboards had USBPWR three pin header blocks, with a jumper
on them. One jumper position was +5V (don't wake up) and the other
position was +5VSB (can wake up). Simply moving the jumper, would
remove power from the socket when the computer is in shutdown. And
then, it wouldn't matter how the Windows tick box was set. Without
power, connected devices don't have a say in the matter.

But modern motherboards dispensed with that, and all USB ports will
be powered with +5VSB. And then, you need those Windows settings.

Boot into BIOS and look under the Power settings for "Keyboard PowerOn" and "Mouse PowerOn" or something similar.
Disable both. I know it's supposed to be for a mouse button press, but it may be seeing the signal from the wireless
dongle as a button press when the mouse is merely moved.
