Well, it's the mouse's fault. The keyboard isn't able to wake up the system at all but if you so much as move the mouse a twinge it'll wake up.
I guessyou have to make positive that the mouse can't be nudged even slightly and I bet everything will be ok.

I'm sure the mouse wasn't moved. I was away from the computer and no one else uses this machine.
I did check the Energy Saver control panel again and found I had "wake up for network administrative access" checked. I unchecked it to see what would happen. The one time I left the machine asleep since then, it was still asleep when I got back. But that's only one data point and I hadn't left it asleep as long as the other times. I'll see what happens. This is annoying.

Entity Vincent Vega spoke thus:

Since this never
happened before I got the new keyboard/mouse, I can only assume they are causing this.

I had a Macally wireless keyboard on my Cube under 9.2 and under no circumstances would it sleep.
Macally support insisted it worked with the Cube.
They sent me a second unit and still no sleepy-bye.
Returned it for a refund.
