Windows 7: Keyboard/Mouse wake up from Sleep no longer works

Keyboard/Mouse wake up from Sleep no longer works

Something has recently changed and I can no longer wake up my Windows 7 Ultimate PC from Sleep state using mouse movement or "Sleep" button on multimedia keyboard. I have to push the power button on the PC itself. This worked fine up until a few days ago. I did not make any changes to the power settings. I checked and the settings appear to be what they always have been.

Suggestions are welcome!

Check in the BIOS that the wakeup functions are still enabled for the mouse/keyboard.

Posting this update in case anyone else has similar problem. To fix it I had to reinstall the Microsoft Intellipoint and Intellitype software. Good idea since there was a new version released since I built my Win 7 PC. Some update or other application I installed in the interim must have interfered with sleep capability.
