    I have windows7 home premium. This same problem also occurred with Vista Ultimate which I had before I upgraded. When I exit to the log-in page, I will most of the time put my PC to sleep. Resumption from sleep has been much quicker with windows 7 but I still have the same occasional problem (probably about 1 in every 5-10 resumes) that I had in Vista. The PC will resume to the log-in page but the mouse will not be operational. I must then TAB using the keyboard to the sleep button, put the PC back to sleep, wake it up again, and, voila, the mouse works just fine. I should add that if I just log into windows in this mode the mouse will not work there either. I have a microsoft intellimouse optical ps/2 port mouse and am using the latest win7 intellipoint driver. Also should mention that I am using 64bit windows and have been for several years. Any ideas?

    Welcome to the Lounge!!

    Have you checked the power management settings for the mouse? You may want to prevent the PC from powering down the port when sleeping.

    Yes, I have changed the power settings with respect to the mouse. This seems to have no effect on this problem.

    I have the same or similar problem. It occurs less frequently than in the beta. I also occasionally lose my external HD and/or ext DVD drive when resuming. A simple reset of the mouse works for that but have to power cycle the ext hd for it to reappear. It appears to be a USB issue.

    See if the last post at Help with sleep wake up - Page 2 - Windows 7 Forums helps.

    I appreciate the advice, but I'm not sure that anything in that thread will help me as I'm not using a USB mouse but a ps/2 port mouse. I would suspect that setting the USB Selective Suspend Setting to "disabled" would not help me with my ps/2 port mouse problem. What does changing this setting initiate as I would not like to introduce another variable to my problem unless changing this setting is harmless. Thanks.

    Oh nuts. I forgot the PS/2 part. Sorry for the distraction.

    I reset that as your post described and will see how it works out. Mine is a USB issue so maybe that is the fix. I thought PS2 used the same bus though?... Seems like it might still be applicable to those..

    It has now been two weeks since I first uploaded my problem here. I would like to thank Joe P. I decided to try the solution in the article you posted figuring when it didn't work I could always change it back. As I wrote the article talked about USB mice and mine is a PS/2. Well in the two weeks since I last posted the problem has not reoccurred---and as often as it was happening it would of by now. So I think the problem is fixed. I wanted to post this message in case anyone else is having this problem and also to ask a question. Does anyone know why this setting under power management---USB selective suspend--would affect my PS/2 mouse as originally described. Interesting. Thanks again, Joe P.
