Basically, my mouse works fine until I unplug my laptop to bring with me to class. My laptop goes to sleep in the interim, and works fine. When I return to plug my laptop back into my power source my mouse doesn't work properly! Here is the order of reconnecting: Reconnect power cable, reconnect mouse to USB, open laptop, wake from sleep. I do not have issues if I unplug my laptop and it never sleeps.
This is the error I receive when I click on the device in device manager: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory. (Code 38)
The device also has a '!' icon next to it.
When I unplug and replug my mouse, I get a noise that's like dong-dong instead of the usual dong-ding. When I unplug I get the usual ding-dong sound
At first I thought this was a power management issue so I turned off the option in device manager that allows windows to turn off the USB to conserve power. This did not work. I have tried uninstalling, and reinstalling but no use there either. The only way to get my mouse back online is to restart windows all together. While this works, I would rather not have to do this every time I take my laptop to class.
