    Disable USB in software? (Keeping the Mini Asleep)

    My mini wakes from sleep on the slightest move of the mouse, sometimes only seconds after going to sleep.

    Without using a P1900, does anyone know of a way to disable the Wake from USB function on a Mac Mini?

    I don't want to have to manualy turn off my hub everytime I put the mini to sleep.

    It seems like there could be a script that could disable or unmount all the USB devices on sleep, and then remount them after waking up.

    in sys prefs under keyboard and mouse you can change the tracking I believe this is basicly the sensitivity so if you don't mind making it a little slower that could be an option

    There is an option on the Carnetix P1900, which cuts the secondary power before the primary one. If you power the USB hub from the secondary power on the P1900, it should lose the power before the Mac mini goes to sleep.
    But it need to use a hub, which works only with external power.

    Bcohen5055, that doesn't change the wake up properties.

    atl, thanks but I knew that (said anything besides P1900)
    I didn't have enough time to order one before my trip.

    I have found an ok solution, use Hibernate mode.
    The mini won't wake from it on USB activity, and it boots up fast enough.

    That's also a solution. But my Mac mini has problems with some USB devices. He won't wakeup correctly from SafeSleep. But if it's work for you, it's okay.
