Windows 7: Wake on mouse move

29 Dec 2008   #1

Vista Ultimate 32 bit, Win 7 Pro 32 bit, Win 7 Pro 64 bit
 
 
Wake on mouse move

I found with both the 6956 and the 7000 install, the wake up on mouse move doesn't work, I have to re-boot,

Has anyone else had this problem, Bios is set to enabled.

Windows 7 build 7000 lets me click my mouse and it wakes up.

I have no password set on wake up.

Works fine for me as well in both versions.


What type of mouse do you have?

Are you using any type of USB to PS2 adapters?

Does the keyboard wake up the computer?

I've randomly encountered this. Sometimes I can get it to wake up, sometimes I can't. Also running no password on wake up. What will happen with me is I can see the cursor, but that's it. Just a mouse cursor and a black screen. Moving the mouse doesn't seem to work, the cursor just stays where it is (usually the middle of the screen).

Well a problem I have is different, I put it in sleep mode then 5 mins later it just comes back on, this is on a laptop with no mouse just the touch pad, also I did not close the screen so I don't know why I'm having this issue.

Dj, yours is probably something coming in via Network needing to wake it up - I know *exactly* what mine is - I have my router set to forward syslog packets to my machine, but haven't gotten around to actually installing a syslog daemon, so every now and again my router sends my machine a packet or group of packets, waking the machine up.

The kewl thing is that the machine usually goes back to sleep within 5-10 minutes...

USB Optical
No
No

However I have now solved the problem,
Go into Device Manager>> right click "Mouse" and Properties>>Power Management, remove tick from "Allow Device to wake Computer.
OK

This only works with 6956 and 7000 apps,
Vista retains the tick,
Don't ask me why, its just that it does.

I was doubtful when I did it.

Thats strange. Would that not do the opposite? Also fwiw, I can do it in my Vista installation.
Djhallucn8,s problem reuqires the opposite. Right click the network adapter in the Device manager. Click properties - Power management, and UNtick the square "Allow this device..etc.
