I just got a new mouse but its a PS/2 connection instead of USB and it wont wake the PC from C3 sleep (i think the mouse is being turned off in sleep).
My old USB mouse which i took out today worked perfect and would wake the PC from sleep by clicking once.

Under Control Panel>Mouse>Hardware>Properties>Power Management:

Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power is unticked and greyed out
Allow this device to wake the computer is ticked

Im using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.

I had this issue before but it was months ago and i found out how to do it from a thread on the internet but now i cant find it, so any help will be appreciated.
