I have an iMac running El Capitan. I put my iMac to sleep because it's faster than hibernate and only uses 1.2 watts anyways. But every time the mouse is moved, it wakes it up.
How do I stop a USB mouse (NOT bluetooth!) from waking the Mac? I like that the keyboard wakes it, just not the mouse, because sometimes it gets moved out of the way, or the cat moves it.
This is a simple power option in both Windows and Linux but I can't seem to find the same option in MacOS. Please don't answer with placing the mouse upside down, or in a box etc, this is not a solution for me, neither is shutting it off or hibernating it. I'd like some kind of OS or hardware option.
