TIA

The USB Mighty Mouse on my 24" iMac won't wake it from sleep. it requires a keystroke. The mouse alone will wake a sleeping display, but not a full sleep.

I spent about $10 on a Microsoft mouse. When my computer sleeps, the light in the mouse goes out. It seems neither the mouse nor the keyboard will wake the computer unless I press a mouse button. I like that.
