    My mouse is really sensitive and it wakes up my macbook from sleep constantly.

    Is there any way to prevent this?

    My mouse is a MX1000 (USB) and my keyboard is a Apple Wireless (BT).

    It would be nice if it would only wake up keystroke and not any mouse action.

    My Mac Pro doesn't wake from sleep when I move the mouse. Not sure if it's an option I set or just the difference between a laptop and desktop.

    I've found that if I let my machine fall asleep it will wake easily. Sometimes even the vibration from a heavy footstep will do it. However, if I explicitly put the machine to sleep this does not happen. Are you putting the machine to sleep or just letting the Energy Saver time it out?
