    When my widows goes to sleep I can not wake it up with the mouse,
    I have to re-boot.
    I have looked for the last hour & can not find where to disable it.

    Can some one tell me where to look???

    Thank You

    - click Control Panel
    - Pick Performance and Maintenance
    - and finally pick power options

    1. Right click on your desktop

    2. Click Properties

    3. Click on the Screensaver Tab

    4. In the Monitor Power section click Power

    5. When that window opens up, click the Power schemes tab

    6. Under the section "Settings for Home/Office desk power schemes," change it to "Always On"

    If the above doesn't work try this.

    press the windows(start key on your keyboard) and the pause/break key at the same time.
    This will bring up your system properties box.
    Click on the Hardware tab and then the device manager button.
    Double click the "mice and other pointing devices" line and right click on your mouse option that appears, left click properties and then power options.
    Make sure "allow this device to bring computer out of stand by" is checked.

    Hope this helps.

    Thought I had my problem solved but evidently dont.
    My screen saver keeps resetting it self.
    I had it on 10 minutes, I reset it to 90 Minutes hit apply, OK & 10 minutes later it resets to 10 Min.
    I also hit the power button & told it to NEVER turn off & it also resets itself.

    Any suggestions ??
    Thanks
    Bob

    why don't you just set it to none. Also, when did you start to have that problem? A system retoration might help.

    keep us posted

    cheers

    Have Tried setting it to NONE & It still seems to have a mind of it's own.
    regardless what I set it on it still goes back to 10 min.
    Oh I don't remember when this started.
    Thanks

    I would take care of that first since we don't want to mess up what you are currnetly working on. Get it done and post again if you're still having trouble.

    I'll be happy to help

    cheers

    PaPa, are you running the windows screen saver or something else?

    If something else it may have it's own settings.

    It appears that my problem is solved,
    Apparently you can't change windows in the Safe Mode.
    every thing appears to be working now.

    Thanks

    I do not want to start something here but do you have the following all turned on?

    Screen saver

    hibernation

    stand-by

    all of the power options

    If so this is why you have been having the troubles. Just one more question what kind of monitor do you have An LCD screen or one of the older ones with the CRT in it?

    Either way you do not need all of these running and what is happening is they are tripping over each other when trying to return the computer to its a normal state so you can use it.

    Unless you are in a business environment you do not need these things running. You can set all of the power options to NEVER and turn off all but the screen saver, leave the screen saver because of the neat displays that these have.

    If you have and LCD screen and it is not a laptop then these are also not needed. These settings are for saving power and they only need to be used in a laptop because of the battery discharging.
