UEFI BIOS and resume/suspend

I have a new PC Specialist Genesys IV laptop, which reports itself as
a Clevo W240EU/W250EUQ/W270EUQ.  This has a UEFI bios.  I have
installed Ubuntu quantal and it is basically running well.  One issue
I have is to do with suspend/resume.  I can suspend by closing the lid
or choosing the action from the indicator and then resume by opening
the lid or hitting the power button and all is well.  The problem is
that, having suspended, if I move the mouse or hit a key on the
external keyboard then it resumes, which is obviously a Bad Thing.

I thought there might be something in the BIOS settings to control
this but apparently not.  I am wondering whether it is up to the OS to
control it.

Any ideas anyone?
