Is this a feature of Snow Leopard? Hitting a key works just as well but I'm curious if I can re-enable the mouse movement to "wake up."

Edit: I'm using the Bluetooth Apple mouse.

what type of mouse are you using? – John T Sep 4 '09 at 17:15

You can't just move the mouse. You must do a click to wake your Mac up.

Only works for wired mice methinks. – caliban Sep 4 '09 at 17:16

Mouse movement doesn't wake the computer up for me, but clicking the mouse will.

I'm using a Razer Deathadder.
