hi, m wondering if anyone can help me.

i run the following:
Pentium IV socket 478 mobo-Asus P4P800 DLX
Win2K Pro SP4
101 Keyboard (PS2) -set to bring PC out from standby
Optical Mouse (USB) - NOT set to bring PC out from standby

current standby settings:
monitor off - 20 mins
hdd off - 3 mins
pc standby - 3 mins


Q1) should my hdd setting be turned off before or after my pc is set to go on standby-or it doesnt matter?

Q2) when i have my mouse set to bring my pc out of standby, my pc does not go into standby (it switches off and back on again) why is this?

Q3) because of that i have turned off mouse to bring pc out from standby and it works, however once my pc goes into standby i cant bring my pc back up again with my keyboard even when i have set it to do so. pls help.

Your settings are illogical. It makes no sense to have the Monitor set to turn off after the PC standby (which should turn off the Monitor)

And frankly I wouldn't have the HD set to go on standby at all, it saves little or nothing unless perhaps you are on a notebook.

For the mouse related issue, I don't see anything in the MS knowledge base, but have a look there might be something specific to your particular setup:
