    I just upgraded to Mountain Lion from Snow Leopard. With SL, I could wake up the computer from sleep with just a jiggle of the mouse. Now with ML, I have to actually click the mouse to get the computer to wake. I don't like clicking on a black screen because I don't know what the mouse is actually pointing to and might be on something in the dock. Is there a way to restore wake up with just a mouse jiggle?

    I dont think that it is actual a 'used' click. just wakes. so no risk of it opening something...

    that's correct - the click just wakes the computer up.

    I too miss the ability to wake my MBP up just by touching the trackpad (10.6 didn't even needed a click!)

    Any keypress will also wake it. I've switched to using the shift key for wakeups.

    Thanks...I like that suggestion.
    I still miss Snow Leopard, though :(.
