Windows Vista sleep problem

Guest

I am able to manually put Windows Vista to sleep by either the power button
on the Start menu or even by a voice recognition command, but my settings for
sleep after so many minutes does not work. My screensaver comes on after 20
minutes and the system is to sleep after 40 minutes but doesn't. I have a
Logitech wireless mouse, an Epson Perfection USB scanner and 2 HP USB
printers attached. Any ideas for a fix?

I have found the problem below. I have a dial-up DSL connection rather than
an Always On connection. If I disconnect then Windows Vista will enter the
Sleep mode without any intervention. Would the same problem be evident with
an Always On connection? Anyone know?

I've got the same problem. Can someone please help?

Wireless USB mice are confirmed to cause this problem. I solved it by using
a PS/2-USB adapter for the mouse transmitter.

There is a Windows Update (Optional) that addresses the problem - at least
for MS Wireless mouses. Can't remember the full name or number but has HID
Filter in the name.

The only mouses that cause this problem run on the 27mhz range. All others
do not cause a problem with sleep\resume.

I found the reference, but my Windows Update doesn't show it., maybe because
I've disconnected the mouse from USB to resolve the issue, which is better
for me anyway.
