    I've searched and found a couple old threads about this "issue" but no working solutions were offered. I have a Wireless USB Logitech Mouse. It's the one with the incredibly tiny USB receiver, like smaller than a thumbnail. The thing is, when my Macbook Pro is asleep, any movement the mouse detects will wake the computer. It's not a huge deal, but can be kind of a pain, because the whole "waking up when the lid's closed and going back to sleep once it realizes the lid's closed" is a minute-long ordeal and isn't necessary when I'm just moving my mouse to another position to make room on my desk. It's not Bluetooth so I can't uncheck the "allow Bluetooth device to wake computer" option. I could unplug it each time, but the receiver is so small that it would be really easy to lose. I was just wondering if there was some kind of option to prevent any USB device from waking the laptop, or some kind of work around. Thanks

    There is nothing you can do. Thats just the way Apple designed it.

    I've been waiting for a solution for the past 2 years but there is nothing so far. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard from them to put an option into the preference panel that gave the user the choice as to whether or not USB devices wake the computer. I don't know why they don't do it.
