    no mouse left-click after sleep


    running windows8 NT, usually no problems, but sometimes after waking up from sleep, the left-click on the mouse doesn't work. (most of the time, it works after sleep.) right-click always works, even after sleep. I am using a USB microsoft wheel mouse, optical, 1.1A, kind of old, but usually works fine.
    any ideas?

    Interesting question. My laptop does a similar thing, but that's with the left click on the laptop. I have to press a keyboard key to make the image (before the password/ login screen) go away.

    My desktop doesn't work that way (just tried)

    Interesting question!
