Sleep Mode Issues

    I have been using Windows 7 for several months and generally like it.
    However, the sleep mode does not work consistently. It works for a
    few days, then stops working. In that time period, I have not gone
    into control panel and changed anything - it simply stops working. I
    can go in control panel, make any change, and it will start working
    again for a few days. My other concern is how to set up sleep mode so
    that mouse movement wakes the computer. Obviously, I like this
    feature and want it to work properly. Any suggestions?

    Don't know about your sleep issue, but in regards to allowing the mouse to
    wake the computer:

    Go into device manager, and then find your mouse under mice and other
    pointing devices.
    Right click on the mouse, click on properties, then go to the power
    management tab.
    Put a checkmark in " allow this device to wake the computer".

    Hope this helps,
