OK, here is one for the experts. In all previous versions of the OS's that went to sleep I was able to wake it up by nudging the mouse. I've been doing that to wake it since Energy Saver began. Now in Mountain Lion it no longer recognizes moving the mouse to wake it, only pressing a key. Now when I first upgraded I thought, "Fine, I'll just tap a key." But by damn I am so well trained that I cannot keep from nudging the mouse first every damn time. Once I sat there thinking, "Press a key" and my stupid arm reached over and nudged the damn mouse. It is officially starting to piss me off, though I'll eventually retrain my reflexes, but I'm fed up.
How can I bring the mouse nudge back to wake the computer from sleep? There must be some sort of terminal command. I pray to Jack there must be. Any skinny-necked, four-eyed, jangle-toothed nerds here who know the terminal command? I promise I'll stop being mean to you. I know, I promised that last time, but this time I mean it.
