    Just bought a Logitech VX revolution for my iBook G4 running leopard. If my ibook is asleep, and I move the mouse out of the way, the computer wakes up. Is there a way to have leopard ignore the mouse when its asleep?

    go to Sys Prefs>Keyboard & Mouse>Bluetooth and uncheck "Allow Bluetooth devices to wake this computer"

    If you have a decent wireless mouse like the logitech MX1000 they have a switch on the bottom.

    This is a bit of a non issue, really. Just move your mouse out of the way or put it on top of the ibook. You could even shut the ibook.

    Turn the mouse upside down when you put the computer to sleep. :D
