Well I installed Sparkylinux LxDE and updated it, everything went well except few glitches happen here and there such as mouse freezing and for once the sparky center didn't work and once shutdown didn't occur.

The main problem is mouse is freezing. My previous linux distro is linux mint and I had a 500 Rupees Logitech mouse it would work and it freezed and this happened time to time... what do I mean by freezing? The mouse pointer didn't freeze... the touch pad was always working. I had to remove the usb mouse and reinsert it to get it to work. I opened the mouse and it broke. I bought a new 250 rupee mouse and same thing is happening in Sparkylinux. Is this linux problem? I set BIOS to optimum - default settings. The mouse power is going off.

Hope I get a working solution.

I have the perfect solution!

If

for i in /sys/bus/usb/devices/*/power/control; do echo on > $i; done

works for you, but only once,
Quote
sudo gedit /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/usb-autosuspend.conf
to replace :

Quote
CONTROL_USB_AUTOSUSPEND="auto"

by

Quote
CONTROL_USB_AUTOSUSPEND=0

It works for me.

   sudo gedit /etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf
       This  is  the  main  configuration  file.  It contains the settings for
       enabling and disabling, plus the core features: the Linux kernel laptop
       mode feature and related settings.

       ENABLE_LAPTOP_MODE_TOOLS
                 This  module determines if laptop-mode-tools should be run or
                 not. Default is 1 Set it to 0 if you would like to completely
                 disable laptop-mode-tools

Set

Be careful with that one. It's a battery-sucker. Disabling USB autosuspend increases battery drain, as all USB-plugged devices (the ones outside aswell as the ones on the inside of a laptop: webcams, keyboard, touchpad, etc. - they're all usually connected via the USB interface) remain active even when unused.
There isn't a single thing that's impossible. Just the things that we don't yet know how to deal with. ;)
