I just installed Ubuntu 11.10 and realized that suspend would not wake by either keyboard or mouse. After following instructions from here: The system will now wake by keyboard.

I have a USB mouse it is a Logitech G5. Even if I enable all of the USB devices listed in /proc/acpi/wakeup, my computer will still not wake up via mouse.

I'd really prefer to wake by mouse instead of keyboard due to cats. Does anyone know why my mouse won't wake the machine even after enabling all USB devices listed?

Could you please list the manufacturer and model of your PC? It would really help in diagnosing the problem. Thanks. – William Nov 15 '11 at 2:15
Also, Ubuntu 11.10 came with a lot of new drivers and driver updates. Updating to 11.10 might fix the problem. – William Nov 15 '11 at 2:34
Sorry that was a typo. I am on 11.10 and still have this issue. My PC is custom built. Its a gigabyte motherboard, I don't remember the model number but can find out later. – corsen Nov 15 '11 at 22:13
Hmm.. That's strange. Does it wake by mouse with a non-wireless one? – William Nov 15 '11 at 22:33
This question appears to be abandoned and unanswered, could you perhaps add more detail to your question? If this question no longer applies then you can either delete it or answer it yourself if you've solved the problem. Thanks! – coversnail Apr 13 '12 at 20:14
