Hi,
My XP home dell inspiron 8500 laptop has been failing to go into standby recently and sometimes reports that the driver for my cordless logitech mouse is stopping the system from entering standby. I had updated the driver recently so I rolled it back but the comp still fails to standby. My only concern is that it makes the laptop run hot all the time, I know it can handle it but sometimes it is really hot and the HD fan makes a lot of noise when it goes on, something that rarely happened previously.
I looked in device manager but don't see a way to change this. Also opened services.msc but don't see anything that seems relevant.
Any Ideas?

I would check in the BIOS and see what setting you have set for standby and what devices can 'awaken' your computer from standby.

According to dev. man. the mouse is allowed to bring it out of standby, but the laptop never enters standby anymore. I've taken to turning it of alot more now, just to cool it down, as it gets a little warm even if closed. It used to seem pretty inert when closed, now it generates about as much heat closed as when I'm using it.
