Disable "Wake on Mouse/Keyboard" while "Wake On By PCIe/PCI" must be enabled

In order to support "Wake on Lan" from "Power Off State (S5)", I had to enableĀ "Wake On By PCIe/PCI" in the bios of my Asus P9X79 Pro. A consequence seems (?) to be that moving the mouse or pressing a key from the keyboard also wakes the PC from "Sleep States (S2/3/4)". This can be solved by disallowing those devices to wake the PC via their "Power Management" properties.
