What type of mouse and keyboard connection do you have? Is the keyboard or mouse a USB port connected device or are you connected to the computer via a PS2 type connection?

I am also curious what setting you have set in the motherboards BIOS settings.

Some BIOS setup utilities also have settings for sleep mode, that could possibly be conflicting with the settings in windows.
