I've looked for answers to this question for a few weeks, but I'm not finding any answers.

I have a Steelseries Rival 650 wireless mouse that can connect wirelessly or wired with a cord they provided. The mouse works fine in both modes once I plug the dongle in. When the mouse goes to sleep (about 2 minutes) I can wake it back up and it will work fine. But when my computer goes to sleep or is shut down, the mouse does not respond and I have to unplug the dongle and plug it back in. The mouse itself connects to the dongle (it changes colors when it connects), but the mouse doesn't appear on the screen.

I have tried reinstalling drivers and messing with power management to ensure the mouse can wake up the computer, but I am out of ideas.
