I have no problem with Vista going into sleep mode, mind you I do have other problems, so I'm seriously considering reverting to XP

Had an issue with the mousepointer 'sticking' sometimes when coming out of sleep mode. I put this down to the mouse being connected by USB. I now have it in the PS2 port and it seems to have cure it.
