    Resume from sleep by mouse sometimes works, sometimes not


    So since resume from sleep was introduced (perhaps 1990s), it always has had it share of problems. Now, on my Windows 10 system sleep and resume from sleep work as I want, except sometimes resume does not work.

    I have tried to pinpoint the cause for it, but I have no idea what the cause is. I have my Logitech mouse triggering the sleep by mouse click. But sometimes it does nothing.

    For example this happened:
    - powercfg.cpl: "Put the computer to sleep: 1 minute", now let it pass = sleep, mouse click, resume, no problem.
    - powercfg.cpl: "Put the computer to sleep: 2 hours" is my normal. Now I do whatever normal stuff on the computer. I forget to switch it off at night. In the morning I return to the computer, it's sleeping. I click the mouse. Nothing happens. I have to press the power switch, now it resumes normally.

    Looking at Event Viewer, it seems that in both cases the computer went to sleep the same way. There is probably a logical explanation to this, but what can it be? Any ideas?

    Asus P8Z77-V resumes from sleep

    I just noticed, my Asus P8Z77-V will resume from sleep all by itself without any intervention. I put it to sleep (Start > Sleep) then after a few seconds, it resumes. I don't know what's causing this. I have a USB mouse, I tried disconnecting it, still it resumed on its own after a few seconds. My keyboard is also USB but I haven't tried disconnecting that (yet) since I don't find it to be a likely culprit.

    Any ideas? *Confused Resume from sleep by mouse sometimes works, sometimes not :confused:

    Win7 Pro Laptop crashes when resumes from sleep

    Ok almost positive it related to the wifi card/driver. If I disable it in the device manager my laptop sleeps and resumes just fine.

    So I guess first step would to be try to find a different driver and if that doesnt work I guess I can replace it. Used mini pci-e wifi cards are pretty cheap.
