How can I make the mouse NOT wake my Mac?

I'm looking for some software that would stop my mouse from waking my Mac when I accidentally bump it. I really want just the shift key to wake the computer but my biggest problem is the mouse. Any suggestions? This is a hard one to search for but I definitely gave it a go, no dice.

I believe this should fix your problems (unless you have a wireless keyboard as well):

System Preferences -> Bluetooth -> Advanced -> Uncheck "Allow Bluetooth devices to wake this computer"

That method would be perfect if I was using a Magic Mouse or some other Bluetooth mouse. This mouse though, uses Logitech's proprietary adapter so Bluetooth settings don't apply. Any other ideas?
