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?

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.

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

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
