More waking questions

OK. If your MB supports waking on any key. What happens if you install a wireless keyboard and mouse ? Can no longer work correct ? Or can it ?


I may actually be insane.
It should still work, as the Keyboard is still sending a signal.

Then the PC isn't listening as it needs power :confused: heh, good question, curious to the answer now :)


I'm sorry Hal...

Thanks. I purchased wireless at the same time I updated bios, and swore it was the bios. Don't matter how many times I change and set settings it just didn't work, now I can rest easy. However it's going to be hard to get use to pushing the butttttttton.


Debiant by way of Ubuntu
there's a known issue here - USB needing power to run etc and in fact my M$ multimedia k/b and mouse (optical/wireless) aims to address the issue because the box has BOTH a USB and a PS2 plug on the end. This works fine on so far as getting into BIOS (I have used another wireless k/b where it would not detect DEL and I had to plug in a PS2 k/b for any BIOS ops!) but it is still not apparently good enough to wake up the machine - least not when I set my BIOS options.... Then again I have heard mentin of BIOS options to wake on USB - no idea beyond that... no first hand experience that is.
My asus board has wake on mouse button, I do believe... Mine is an A7N8X-Deluxe... I would assume most other recent boards would have the same feature.
