Hibernation and Standby hangs when USB mouse is connected

by fidodido99 / June 23, 2007 4:14 AM PDT


I'm using WIN XP PS2 fully updated, and a Logitech Cordless Optical mouse connected via USB port. Whenever I try to Hibernate or Standby, the computer hangs, and I just see the "Preparing to Hibernate..." message.

I searched in a lot of forums, and most suggestions involved updating the Logitech mouse driver. I have the latest driver now (Setpoint 4.00, April '07), and the problem persists.

Note that when I disconnect the mouse from the USB port, I can enter and exit Hibernation or Standby modes without any problems.

Any ideas?

Complain with Logitech.

It's their driver that obstructs. They'll surely want to know the details of your motherboard. Hibernation and standby are highly motherboard dependent.
