Unable to wake up with USB mouse

    In BIOS, wake up with USB device is enabled. Both USB keyboard and mouse are enabled.

    However, in device manager, there is Power Management tab for the USB mouses. Pressing it has no effect when the machine is in standby.

    Any way to fix it?

    Use the keyboard. When you use this method on some USB mouse units, they are the last component to awaken and can take as long as two or three minutes.

    Don't press the mouse- shake it! That works for me on my desktop.
