I can't just shake my mouse anymore and wake it up I would have to push tower button to wake up or boot it back up.
I posted this wrong above (I can't push tower button on tower) to wake up, that only works on complete shut down.
I have a dell desktop 530s or 5 can't tell which
I have vista,my computer is 1 year old
mouse no longer wakes up computer??
For months now I go to start go over to ist the power button, I click that and it makes my computer sleep or hybernate?? It just started giving me problems ,I can't just shake my mouse anymore and wake it up I would have to push tower button to wake up or boot it back up. I don't know why that just started.All I want to do is shake my mouse or touch keyboard and bring my desktop back up.I have checked in device manager and both the keypad and mouse are checked to bring computer out of sleep mode but it does not.
in power management power button settings says when I choose power button do this and (choice is sleep)
I just went to start,sleep and it went to sleep, I shook my mouse and touched my keyboard nothing, I think i hit the esc key and the screen came back up. I tried it again and nothing I did would bring my computer back up my screen kept saying check cable, I did and I finally had to push tower button off and on again, my screen finally came back on but not fully all at once and I heard beeping, I finally came back on.
I went into set up (scary) and under power management I saw this
remote wakeup -ON
auto power on- disabled
if I have to change something please step by step instructions.I am not good at going into parts unknown on my computer and would need step by step directions on how to fix this and how to get back to desktop if I have to go back into setup.
