  • GPS Mouse drivers

    Hi guys,

    I have a GPS mouse that uses the Prolific USB-to-Serial Com drivers, and it's preventing my system from going into standby. I'm running XP, has anyone else encountered this? I can't seem to find updated drivers, so that avenue is not available.

    Thanks!

      Well, it says specifically that the Prolific USB-to-Com drivers are preventing the system from going to standby, so... I'm pretty sure it's not something else.

        Thats the same name of driver that i am using, i'm also running XP pro, and have tried two different gps s/w programs and havent had any probs. could something be holding your program up and therefore holding your drivers?

        While you have your software running, if you pull your usb plug does it go into standby?

          dont trust everything windows tell's you. try changeing witch USB port you mouse is pluged in to.

          are you useing standby? whare your PSU keep's running and keeps power to the motherboard?
          or hybernate whare loads all your active files to the hard drive and compeltly turn's off

            Standby, and I'll try a different port and report back.

              Had the same problem. XP sp2 is the solution. Or hacking your GPS to run through serial/ps2 ports.

                  my own 2 cents....

                  Holux drivers (for the GM 210) dramatically increased my GPS' performance... better tracking, etc...... I use the bu-303, which also used the prolific drivers.

                  Try 'em out!
