Automatic switching doesn't work after wake up from sleep

Postby RogueWire » Sat Aug 03, 2013 5:04 pm

I've got an issue where the automatic switching stops working after I wake up my laptop from sleep. Here's a bug write up for you:

Hardware: Lenovo ThinkPad W520 (which has a built in trackpad), and a Microsoft SideWinder X3 USB mouse.

Repro:
1. Run Mouse Speed Switcher which has been previously setup to switch between the trackpad and external mouse (and confirm automatic switching works properly).
2. Close laptop lid (or put Windows to sleep some other way) and wait for for the sleep indicator light to illuminate.
3. Open laptop (or wake up Windows some other way) and log back into Windows.

Result: Automatic switching no longer functions.

Workarounds:
I've found two ways of restoring the automatic switching:
A. Exit Mouse Speed Switcher, then restart it; or
B. Unplug USB mouse, then re plug USB mouse.

Notes:
Hibernating instead of sleeping results in the same issue.
I typically encounter this bug because I got in the habit of plugging in my mouse before waking up my laptop. I'm now trying to remember to wake up the laptop first, so that this issue doesn't manifest.

Thanks for such a great app!

In case it matters, that was all on Windows 7 x64.

Thank you very much for your feedback.
On our test computers can't reproduce this issue they always work correctly after the computer is resumed from sleep. However from your description I think I find a way to fix this misbehavior, probably I just need to collect again all USB devices in the way MouseSS does on startup.
I think that by the end of the month I could prepare a test version so you can try whether it fixes your issue.
