The mouse that has a little to much power.

This is a weird one,when I first turn on my PC of a morning it is necessary to,after pressing the power button to take out then immediately plug back in my mouse, which is a Mionix Saiph 3200.

I thought it might be a fault with a particular USB port,but no,it happens no matter where it is plugged in.

This seemed to have started after I was tidying the cabling inside the PC, better airflow and all that. The mouse,previous to that seemed always to be powered, the various lights were always on.But now when I turn off PC the mouse goes off as well.

Not a major problem as the pc runs perfectly well despite this little foible.
My OS is Win7

I don't have a definitive answer but it is always worth unistalling the driver and then re-installing it. Latest drivers from click here

Try checking USB Legacy is turned on in the BIOS

Did both suggestions, no change. Weird.

Anyone else?

It sounds as if the USB ports are being turned off when you power down and that the Power Management settings have been changed. A couple of thoughts here from other forums

1. Are you using Vista?

If so you can change the USB port behavior in power management/advanced settings.

Go to USB settings/selective supend settings, enable/disable should shut the port down when the PC is off...........

2. If you are using XP ,this may be the option You are looking for:

Device Manager -> USB Controler -> USB Root Hub->Properties->Power Management->Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.

I am actually using Win 7, but you have given me food for thought. I am posting this from my iPhone, so will look into this further tomorrow.
