Sluggish responsiveness for mouse/keyboard upon wakening from sleep mode
Posted on 2008-10-13
When the PC wakens from sleep mode the wireless mouse and keyboard are slow to respond. Pressing a letter on the keyboard may or may not generate a letter on the screen. It may take numerous clicks to activate the letter. Likewise, the mouse may require numerous clicks to get a an actual activated click. The mouse moves fine, it is just the action of clicking that is the issue. After about 2 or 3 minutes beyond recovering from sleep the moue and keyboard work fine. Everything had worked fine up to some point in the recent past(3 months?) when I suspect MS updates may have buggered things up.
Upon scouring the web I see numerous issues with Vista sleep mode and USB so I suspect this has something to do with Vista more than it has to do with the wireless desktop.
