having just started to use the sleep function again recently, i have experienced the mouse freeze. but mine works if i just unplug and replug it in the same usb port.
it also seems to be less likely to happen if i wake with the keyboard rather than the mouse. ocassioanlly my old habit creeps in and i use the mouse but i'm getting better.
and yes, it would be nice to get rid of this annoyance. but an annoyance is all it really is for me at this point.
