    I would like to know why I can not wake up from standby by moving the mouse like in WinME or with the keyboard like in WinME

    The only way I can resume and return to desktop, is by pushing the power button on my machine.

    Whats up with that?

    Only way to wakeup from standby is by pushing the power button.

    I want to move the mouse or press any key

    two things...

    this can either be disabled/enabled in your bios, or

    right click on my computer->properties->hardware tab->device manager

    now click the plus signs next to keyboards and mouse/poining devices. for each one, double click your device, click the power management tab and make sure there is a check next to "allow this device to bring the computer out of standby" now this will only work if you have it enabled in the bios.

    did you check your bios?

    also, are you using usb or ps/2 to connect your input devices?

    PS/2

    I checked my bios, nothing.

    Its strange because it worked perfectly with WinME before.

    do you have acpi installed?

    go to device manager and expand the "computer" branch, if it says "standard pc" your screwed lol if it does say "advanced configuration and power interface" check if its enabled in your bios and/or control panel
    that *may* be your problem

    Yes, it says ACPI in Device Manager.


    How would I go about disabling it then?

    Hi INFERNO2K,

    Firstly Welcome to the forum

    Control panel>Mouse>Hardware>Properties.Power management

    and make sure the "Allow this device to bring the computer out of stand by" is checked


    Hope this helps you
    Alan

    P.S. I'm on Win 2000 now but I'm sure its the same in Xp

    Just my $.02, standby is useless. Just have it set to power down monitor and harddisks after set amount of time
