How to See a List of Devices that are able to Wake Up your Computer

This article will show you how to see a list of devices installed on your computer that are configured to be able to wake up your computer from sleep.

This process may or may not work on windows XP.

Here's How:

1. Open a command prompt.

2. In the command prompt, copy and paste the command below and press enter. (see screenshot below step 3)

powercfg -devicequery wake_armed

3. You will now see a list of device names that are able to wake up your computer. (see screenshot below)

For example, my HID-compliant Bluetooth Mouse and Logitech HID-Compliant Keyboard are listed as being able to wake up this computer.

This process may or may not work on windows XP.
