    I have a Micronics M6MI that has a very strange behavior, as long as you use the machine its fine, if you leave for a little while and go to try to move the mouse it shuts off.

    The power supply is atx and the mouse is PS/2

    Any ideas?

    What's your Windows OS ?

    Sounds like a Power Management related issue.
    Go to: Control Panel -> Power
    Change all 3 options to "never"
    Does the problem persist?

    If so, then take a look in the BIOS under Power Management and look for any anomalies.

    Windows 2000 is the OS, I have shut off everything in the bios that I can and it didn't have an effect.
