    Anyone know of a way or setting to prevent the mouse from triggering a
    computer from resuming from standby on Windows 98 SE. I know there is
    a setting in Windows XP but there doesn't seem to be one in Windows 98

    Start | Run <type in>

    you've tried that. or editing registry for the CLSD for the mouse.
    Good luck finding it.

    Start | Run <type in>

    Might give better results

    CLSID, and my bad it wouldn't be for the mouse.

    If you wish to trace your problem, download and run (with filters)
    Process Monitor , finding a mouse movement
    to wake the OS would be a challenge.

    Place the mouse in a position where the ball or lasers or whatever have no
    possible movement to detect - eg in a 'mouse cradle', or even just

    If the mouse is connected via an easily accessible USB socket, unplug it.
    Don't do that with a PS/2 socket though, as doing so while the computer is
    powered up can damage the computer.

    No. Shut your computer completely off it you're not using it. It stops
    wasting electricity and windows slowdowns anyways.
