Sleep button not working properly

The sleep button sometimes works but other times, either with or without the mouse Windows attempts to restart and then shuts down. Any ideas?

Check in Device Manager - right click your mouse - Power Management tab - untick "Allow this device to wake my computer" - do the same for your keyboard.

Isn't that the opposite of what's wanted. I want the mouse to be able to wake the computer. The box is ticked at the moment.

Sorry - totally misread your question. Have you got a screensaver by any chance which could be interfering? You may find something here enter link description here
