Thanks for the tips.  I'm pretty sure I checked the properties in each tab of the USB CONTROLLER tree in device manager, but it doesn't hurt to check again.  I agree, tracking down the culprit is important, at least for me.  I hate not knowing how things work or worse yet not working as they should.  I would have expected to find something in the system event log other than a generic "wake from hibernation."

I'll follow your suggestions and report back.

Thanks !

Every now and again I find my laptop merrily chugging away in the morning, but had left it off the night before.  Sometimes I can uncover the culprit after digging around in the event logs, but sometimes not.  Just like a sudden crash,  Windows does not seem to know exactly what event occurred to cause it to come out of hibernation/Off.  Is it possible to determine ?  Or, at least have a pop-up window that shows SOME information, like time slept, time resumed, event?, etc.  At least I'd have some idea of when it happened.  One culprit was the Media Center schedule updater (This is a Vista Premium Laptop).  I have looked into the Vista Task Scheduler, but it it a bit more complex than XP's and I am hesitant to tamper with some of the settings as I'm not sure exactly the ramifications.  But, I would have more confidence in my selections given more information.

Can anyone offer a comment, opinion, or help?

At the risk of being labeled a spammer, I'd like to offer my experience with MJ.  I thought the late night TV  infomercials made this a dubious product, but figured for $40 it was worth satisfying my curiosity.  I found the product as advertised, and surprisingly well thought out.  All software is self contained and when plugging it in, appears as a cd drive which then autoloads.  I tried it on my laptop connected with a wireless g connection to my router.  Even using the built in speakers and mic on the lappy it worked satisfactorily.

When received and activated I was given a choice of 4 area codes where I live (Phoenix, Az).  At the very least, it's worth $20/year for a local phone number with voice mail and and voicemail to email forwarding even if you never used it to call out, which is what I do.

My 2cents.  Now I'll see if they stay in business for more than a year or two.
