    Is it possible to set my imac to only wake from sleep when a keyboard button is pressed.. rather than when the mouse moves?

    I am using my imac solely for audio production at the moment and am often waking it from sleep accidently by nudging the mouse.

    ? thanks

    If your computer sleeps, you should be able to move (but not click) the mouse as much as you want... However, if it's just the screensaver, or the turn-monitor-off-after-inactivity feature, that's sensitive to mouse movement.

    actually my setting appear to be correct. Its set to enter sleep mode, not a blank screensaver.. and the imac still wakes when the mouse is moved. Its an aftermarket logitech mouse.. maybe that is the issue?
