    Sleep mode disables keyboard!

    I'm not sure if this has been posted and solved already, if anyone can direct me to a post where this problem is addressed, I would be very greatful.

    In case it hasn't, I'm having a problem. I already made it so that my nVidia nForce thing won't wake my computer up from sleep. However, when I do wake it up from sleep, the keyboard will not work and I have to un-plug it and plug it back it in for it to work.

    A keystroke will wake the computer up, but then once the computer is woken up a yellow triangle with a "!" on it shows up next to the keyboard in the device manager.

    I have already downloaded the Vista service pack "2" as well as installed the hotfix that claims to address this problem. I have downloaded the update ending in "528" and that didn't solve the problem either. This is really irritating me.

    How do I fix this?
