    sleep mode drops mouse (XP home SP 2)

    Recently, my desktop has started failing to recognize my mouse after it goes into sleep mode (screen sleep mode that is). This never happened before. I started after I installed the auto-installed XP security fixes the other day. Could that be causing it? I also enabled file sharing over a wireless and cable based router a week or so ago but it didn't happen right after that. It ws after the "upgrades".

    It is a USB based mouse on a Dell 8300 desktop...

    Thx!

    Try to defragment your hard drive (Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Disk Defragmenter) and restart your computer. Do you still have the problem?

    I've no experience messing in this area, but could it be here in Device Manager:
