    Hi all,

    I have tried several bluetooth mice with my 15" 1.67 Powerook running 10.4.1: the Kensington Pilot mous, Kensington Pocket mouse, Logitech mx900, and the Maccally mini BT mouse. Basically, all of the mice but the latter cause the computer to crash when it is put to sleep (I would use the Maccally but it is too small). It seems that the System UI server hangs when it awakes from sleep, or something along those lines, forcing a hard reboot. When I put the laptop to sleep, the computer wakes up about 3 seconds later and becomes unresponsive. This has been a problem with several different brands of BT mice, so I am guessing it's an issues with 10.4.x. Unchecking the box "allow Bluetooth devices to wake up computer" seems to fix the problem, but this makes it difficult to restart my mac when it is asleep with the lid closed and connected to a monitor. Anybody know any workarounds to this issue?
