[clug] DVI/USB KVM and 'sleep'/'wake'

I have a 3yo 4-port KVM with DVI/USB input/outputs.

Does anyone else have this problem?

If you've seen it, are there 2- or 4-port KVM's that deal with it properly?

When I put a machine to 'sleep', if the keyboard/mouse is directly
connected, it will wake if one is moved/used.

BUT, if I connect keyboard/mouse via the KVM, then the system can't be
woken by touching KBD/mouse.

The "gotcha" is swapping machines away from a sleeping machine causes a
USB 'event' (my words) and wakes up the sleeping machine.

Thanks in Advance
