I think that is a Bios setting and may or not be in your computer,
If you have problems getting to your Bios please come back.
It is something that happens long before Linux Kernel is awake, unless some one can tell me otherwise.

wake up from keyboard/mouse/lan is a part of Bios and works from cold start.
You require wake up from Sleep that is different as the operating system is already running only on hold.
As I do not wish to use Windows it is not in my experience so I cannot help sorry.
If you're talking about 'sleep' as in suspend to RAM rather than 'hibernate' (suspend to disc) then there is a way to do it in software. I know because when I upgraded from Lenny to Squeeze I lost the ability to wake by keyboard, but can still wake by pressing the power button. I made no direct changes to the BIOS in that time. I even had the two versions dual-booting for a while - Lenny wakes from keyboard, Squeeze does not.
Unfortunately I don't know what the difference is, so can't help there.
Yes, I am talking about suspend in memory. I looked in Bios but keyboard suspend is disbled. I tried to enable but it was the same. Computer wake up when somebody touch the keyboard.
I put it in disalbe again. Must be some software way to change that. Something in kernel or config file somewhere, but I dont know what to change there. If somebody has any idea?...
