How To Configure Mouse To Allow Sleep?


Three days ago, i did a clean install of windows 7 and configured the machine to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity. That worked fine for two days. Yesterday, i installed intellipoint 7 because i need to program the extra buttons on my intellimouse explorer 4 for different applications. Now that i've done that, the machine will not sleep automatically. When i display the properties for the mouse and go to the power management tab, the option to allow the machine to turn off power to the mouse is not activated. Iow, i cannot check that box.

I changed my advanced power management settings to be sure that i set the multimedia sharing to allow the machine to sleep and also disabled "selective suspend" (not sure what it's for) but i still can't get the check box in the mouse power management properties to be activated. Edit:  i uninstalled intellipoint 7 and sure enough, the machine sleeps as expected. The box on the power management tab remains deactivated but the machine is sleeping. What's going on here? I never had any problem with this in same model mouse with either windows xp or vista.

Is this a "known issue"? The old version of intellipoint is not compatible with windows 7 so i can't use it. Is there any way to program my buttons and get windows 7 to sleep?  Does anyone know if i can run an old version of intellipoint in some sort of compatibility mode? Fyi to microsoft: intellipoint seems to have degraded with every successive release since version 3. If that version supported my current mouse and would run on windows 7, i would definitely be using it.

Bluetooth Mouse Fails After Sleep Mode

My logitech bluetooth mouse looses communication after coming out of standby mode. The mouse does not show up in the devices panel and will not resync. To get it back i have to reboot, then remove the bluetooth mouse from the devices panel and then add the device again. When win7 was installed, it recognized the mouse without the need to manually supply drivers. I checked the logitech site which does not have win7 drivers available for download.

The issue is not limited to the mouse as a bluetooth speaker system has similar problems with standby mode. Anyone know how to solve the bluetooth standby issues on win7? System: dell m1330 laptop, logitech v470 bluetooth mouse, win7-64 home premium

Microsoft Usb Mouse Freezes After Sleep

I've turned off power save on *all* usb ports+hubs+devices. The only way i can remedy the problem is to unplug the mouse from the usb port and plug it back in. The system reports reloading the driver and the mouse works until the next incidence of sleep. Mouse driver dated 6/21/2006, version 6. 1. 7600. 16385 is shown by system to the the most current. I appreciate the power saving, but i really shouldn't have to do this each time. Any help?

Keyboard / Mouse Inactive After Monitor Goes Into Sleep Mode

I seem to be having a problem with both the keyboard and mouse going inactive after my monitor goes into a "sleep" mode and is "woke-up". The mouse works for a few seconds after that and then "freezes& if i unselected the "turn monitor off after 1 hour", then i never experience the problem. I'd like to select "after 1 hour" as i leave my pc on constantly. I have the most recent drivers for my monitor (acer al2216w), am using a logitech "access" keyboard and ms wheel mouse optical usb. The drivers for the keyboard and mouse were installed by windows 7.

Sleep Issue With Mouse And Wireless Card On Usb

I put this toshiba laptop to sleep and incur problems. Win 7 home premium toshiba l455i notice that after i close the top [and induce the sleep] or if manually sleep using the start button, after a minute or so i notice that the mouse led is on, along with the leds for my sprint card.

Watching and listening carefully, i notice that the laptop wakes up, and will beep, an indication that the touchpad has disengaged, noticing that the mouse is plugged in. If i open the laptop, it is standing at the login screen. Why is this?  Why can't i get the thing to sleep. I first noticed this when i started up, and it needed to return from hibernation, with a battery at a low/critical stage.

Alps Touch Mouse Acts Strange After Waking From Sleep Mode

Whenever my new laptop wakes from sleep mode, the touch mouse enters some wacky mode and thinks that it is in magnify mode or some other strange mode. If i can manage to open the mouse control panel screen, i can sometimes reset the mouse. Also, if i force a reboot, the mouse works just fine.

I already returned my first hp pavillion dm3 computer to office depot thinking that there was a problem with the touch mouse, but my new computer does exactly the same thing. I have installed windows live and microsoft reader and firefox since bringing the new computer home yesterday. Plus whatever popped up on my screen asking me to update it (norton, i think, did an update).

I have 14 days (13 now) to get this problem fixed before i have to make a decision of whether or not to return this laptop from where i purchased it to get my money back. I hope someone can help. Before exchanging the laptop last time, i tried re-installing the alps touch mouse, but that did not help. From reading about windows 7, it appears that there are a lot of problems with computers waking from sleep.

My current theory is that there is a software conflict. The last time this happened, however, i had closed all of my open programs before closing my laptop lid, forcing it to go to sleep. That leads me to believe that if it is a software conflict, then it is with some system software running in the background.

It is almost as though the mousepad thinks that i am using two fingers to control it. So that the magnify button comes up. I have found that if i do use two fingers when it is acting this way, that i can fool it long enough to open the mouse control screen to force a reset. Once i do that, everything works fine again until it goes to sleep and wakes up again.

Update Is Taking Forever To Configure

I just bought a new sony vaio laptop with windows 7. I did the initial start up and then immediately went to windows update. I downloaded 11 updates and then it told me to restart my computer, so i did. On the restart it says "preparing to configure windows - do not turn off your computer". Well it has been saying that for 1 hour now. Does it usually take this long? Or what do you recommend that i do.

Mouse Scrolling Stuck With Wireless Mouse

I have a labtec wireless optical mouse for notebooks. It causes scrolling to involuntarily occur with sliders and drop-down boxes as long as the mouse is hovering over the item.
For example:

1) when i signed up to these forums and had to choose a country the mouse scrolled through the list right to the bottom without my intervention (other than selecting the drop-down box). Almost all drop down boxes tend to be effected regardless of what program it is in.

2) if i try to adjust the volume in the system tray the mouse raises the sound even while i am trying to lower it.

3) in certain programs the mouse will scroll through the page automatically. It does not do this with all programs. Chrome, ie, firefox, acrobat, notepad and many others are not affected.

4) i did not have these issues with xp at all, but i did when i used ubuntu (mouse would cycle through tabs and always cycle to the first box on the ubuntu taskbar. I had to alt-tab to change windows. )
 
5) when i first installed chrome the mouse would automatically scroll through the tabs to the first one even if all i did was hover over the tabs. I could could only properly select another tab if i clicked it and then moved the mouse from the tabs quickly. I did this which fixed the issue: "the document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior.

Computer Sleep

I set my computer to sleep after 30 minutes. It did go to sleep. When i moved the mouse to wake it up, only the wallpaper loaded up. No icons at all. I had to turn it off by the on and off button on the tower. Not a good idea, but that was the only way i could restart my computer, after it turned on again all my icons were there and i was able to resume all the functions again. Any ideas how to set it to sleep without this problem? This is a new windows 7 computer. Hp pavillion elite 137c

Pc Will Not Sleep Or Shut Down

My computer will not shut down or sleep, i am running windows 7 64-bit on an hp pavillion slimline. When i click either of these options it tells me it is going to sleep or shutting down, but the actual computer never does. It stays on the shutting down screen with the circled icon constantly spinning. Eventually it just cuts out like after some time, ill say about 5-10 mins, then restarts saying there was an issue shutting down. So for the past couple of days i been trying to fix this problem and it seems i cant do it on my own.

Htpc - S3 Sleep Not Working

I have recently put together a windows 7 htpc (see components below). Media center is working great! I'm just having problems configuring the sleep settings. Here is the rundown:

S3 sleep does not work - error message and reboot when computer wakes
S1 sleep works - cannot wake up computer with remote

Bios is set correctly but s3 sleep does not work. I can wake the computer from s3 sleep using the keyboard/mouse/power button the error screen only appears for a few seconds so i'm unable to make out any error codes. I've checked the event logs, but they don't say much just that my computer was shut down unexpectedly. I tried disabling "hybrid sleep" which seemed to work - the computer woke up and i saw the desktop, but an error message popped up shortly followed by a reboot. Ideally i would like to be able to enter s3 sleep with remote and wake with the remote. S1 sleep won't wake from remote.

I can successfully wake from s1 sleep with the keyboard/mouse/power button, but not the remote. I have tried looking in the device manager for a setting to allow the remote to wake from sleep, but haven't been able to find one. The ehome infrared transceiver device does not a have power management tab. Fyi, i am using the ir receiver port on my hauppauge tuner card not a usb receiver.

Gigabyte ga-ma785gm-us2h
Amd athlon ii x2 245
4gb ram - 2x2gb wintec ddr2-800

Win 7 Sleep Issues

Having installed windows 7 this weekend, i now find that my system isn't really sleeping. It does go into an altered state but i don't think it's really sleep and i can't wake it up with the (ps/2) keyboard as i could before.

The energy report from powercfg says that s3 has been disabled due to a known hardware conflict but standby worked with the same hardware in windows xp. Is there some way i can determine what this "known" conflict is and override it?

The report also lists some usb devices that are not entering suspended state. How do i match the ids on the report to entries in the device manager? Finally, would replacing the keyboard with a usb model let me wake it up with the keyboard again? There were so many complaints about usb keyboards preventing standby that i've tended to stay away from them.

Troubleshooting Sleep Mode

I have a brand new hp laptop w/fingerprint reader. It's has continually had a problem coming out of sleep mode. When i was using just a password it would always tell me my password was invalid, when i started using the fingerprint reader it always says it doesn't recognize the reader. I could do a hard reboot (disconnect power and remove battery) and it would cure the issue. This last time i did a hard reboot the computer started up, the screen flashed and went black and it will not and has not allowed me to do anything. Keyboard and mouse do not function, black screen. Lights on the keyboard come on and the fans work but that's it!

Win7 Would Freeze After Sleep Mode

Windows 7 would freeze after sleep mode and a hard reboot would fix it. Until this last time went to awake it up and i got the normal freeze screen when i went to hard reboot nothing happens other then my fans spin lights come on and the cd drive.

Programs you are having problems with my keyboard will not light up nor will my screen turn on. I tried removing ram and swapping it around, unplugged hard drives, unplugged everything and checked all connections and even removed the battery from my mother board. My motherboard is an asus m2n-sli deluxe with a 3. 2 duel core athlon.nvidia 8800 gt i believe.

Cannot Disable Keyboard Wake From Sleep

I have an asus n80vn notebook. I want to be able to wake up my notebook only by pressing the power button or the sleep button. I do not want any other keyboard key to wake my computer from sleep. Currently, pressing any key on the keyboard will wake my computer from sleep.

Here's what i've already tried:

1. Go to device manager -> keyboards -> properties -> power management -> uncheck "allow this device to wake the computer" why it doesn't work : there is no power management tab in my keyboard driver's properties window. I currently have four entries under "keyboards in the device manager:

Keyboard device filter
Microsoft ehome mcir 109 keyboard
Microsoft ehome mcir keyboard
Microsoft ehome remote control keyboard keys
There is no power management tab in any of these!

2. Go into bios, disable "wake on keyboard" why it doesn't work: there is no "wake on keyboard" option, nor anything similar, in my bios.

3. Open a command window, use the "powercfg -devicedisablewake" command to disable waking from the keyboard. Why it doesn't work: "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" does not report any devices currently set up to wake my computer from sleep. Furthermore, "powercfg -devicequery wake_programmable" only reports that my network card and my usb mouse are capable of being set to wake my computer from sleep (both are currently set not to wake the computer); it makes no mention of the keyboard.

I'm resigned to the idea that i will need to edit my registry, replace my keyboard drivers, or something equally intensive to prevent my keyboard from waking my computer, but i definitely want to do so. If it matters, i have the computer set only to go into s3 sleep, and have disabled hibernation. Any ideas?

Keyboard Dead During Sleep Mode

To date i've been impressed with windows 7. I now have an issue that will have me moving to unix or back to windows xp if i cannot find a resolution quickly. I noticed recently when the pc was asleep that i couldn't wake it using [usb] kbd or [ps/2] mouse.

Pressing caps lock on keyboard gives no result as if power to the kbd has been removed. The only way i am able to get out of sleep mode is to press the front-panel reset button. I'm loathe to do that too often. I'm not aware of any changes made to the computer that coincided with this problem starting. Any ideas what could be going on here? Where do you start troubleshooting if the keyboard and mouse are unresponsive?

Keyboard Does Not Work After Sleep / Hibernate

After i updated to windows 7 (clean install from xp) my keyboard (standard ps/2) will stop working after my pc goes into sleep or hibernate. I changed the keyboard settings to "allow this device to wake computer", which works for sleep mode. However, once the computer goes into hibernate the keyboard will once again not work and the "allow this device to wake computer" box is no longer checked. The drivers are up to date. Is there a fix or work around for this?

Win7 Won't Sleep

I have had this problem since i upgraded from vista to windows 7 back in november 2009, and it is becoming too annoying. I have a sony vgn-nw120d and am running a windows 7 home premium 64-bit system. (If more info is required, please ask!) Anyways, this is the problem: when my laptop goes to sleep, it does not go to sleep. The screen turns black but the laptop is clearly still running because the fans are still on. However, at this point, the laptop becomes unresponsive.

The screen will not turn back on whatever i do it can't do anything - it is as if it is frozen, forcing me to do a force-shutdown by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. I have downloaded many of the drivers on sony's website and have even spoken to sony representatives about this problem, but there has been no luck.

This problem does not happen every time i send my laptop to sleep, but it happens often enough to be a great annoyance. I've asked around many forums but have not gotten a solution as of yet. I have even tried reverting my laptop back to the factory condition (and hence, back to vista), and then re-upgrading it back to windows 7. I hope that someone will help me this time until the issue is resolved.
