PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: XP Home
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Dell 2.0 Gig PC - my own USB keyboard and mouse

We have a small internet cafe and would like to remove the keyboards and mouses' from the systems when they are not in use.  

When the system goes into sleep mode - replugging the mouse and keyboard will not wake the system.  The system needs to be rebooted to get it awakened.  Any work around??

Sorry I can't offer a work-around to the situation you describe.  I think that once the keyboard is unplugged you will need to reboot from sleep mode (personally I find many clients have "issues" with sleep mode anyway.)

I guess the problem you are experiencing stems from vandalism or theft of equipment and/or people simply occupying the computer.  At some internet cafes, the password client will not let users do ANYTHING until they sign in and start using their minutes.  One I was in recently handed me a wireless keyboard in combo with the above.  When finished just hand back the keyboard.  Without knowing more about your operation, those are the only real workarounds I can offer.

Thank you for your answer - you have the evaluated the problem exactly.  We were using infrared wireless keyboard/mouse combo but people prefer a full size keyboard and full size scroll mouse.

Most wireless keyboard use radio frequences and you cab't use more than one unit in a room (Logitech).

Hi,

If your mouse/keyboards are being damaged, I am sure customers will understand using infrared wireless mouse/keyboard even if they are smaller. It's your call!
