I recentally hooked up a 20" Apple LCD to my powewrbook as well as an Apple Keyboard and mouse to use with the Powerbooks Lid closed. Everything works good till I let the machine go to sleep and then when I wake it up the keyboard and Monitor work and mouse clicks work but it wont regiser the ,mouse movement unless I unplug then replug in the mouse. I have tried using all the USB ports on the powerbook as well as the monitor and keyboard. Any ideas?

I use the exact same method to work with my PowerBook and my 23" ACD. But, I have never experienced the issue you mention. Has it just recently started after some update or has it always been that way?
