You would do well to move this to the Helproom.

instead of the Helproom. I'll move it across to Helproom now.

Hi chrisjohn

If it's got a USB connection, connect it via that and it should resolve the problem.

I have an optical Mouse connected via PS2 which stays lit even when the computer is off. Only seems to go off if I switch off the power plug for the PC at the mains. I don't really consider it a huge problem though.

Not sure I understand this. Are you saying that you have anoptical mouse, without batteries, that stays lit when the PC is turned off completely? How long does it stay lit?

If the mouse stays lit even with the computer off, then this isn't a Windows issue, but probably a motherboard hardware or BIOS setup function. When the computer is turnsed off, there is still a 5V standby supply active, this is intentional so that the computer can be turned on by external devices. In this case the mouse is kept active so that it can be used to wake the computer up.

rmcqua, I think you are confusing optical with wireless.

  CLONNEN 16:02 01 Feb 2006

Optical means it doesn't have the traditional mouse ball underneath.
