SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 10/10] HID: usbhid: Set USB mice as s2idle wakeup resources
(FYI - combined both of Greg's responses in this message rather than 
responding to them separately)

when this behavior and prescription changed?

Older versions of Windows also didn't support Modern Standby, so I would
hypothesize it's either Windows 8 or Windows 10 that changed it.

> Where are patches 1-9 of this series?

Patch 1 was based on your comment in v2 that there was no helper (it
introduces a helper).

Patches 2-9 are just changes across the kernel to use this helper.

The entire series was submitted to LKML, but individual patches only to
the relevant maintainers for the subsystem. If there is a v4 patch I'll
CC everyone on everything.

Here is a lore link to the whole series:

Is this actually a thing? I've been in the PC industry a while but
never seen a design that supported Modern Standby/s2idle that opted to
use USB to connect an "internal" touchpad/mouse. Microsoft's own
documentation in the same link advises against it at least too.

"We recommend using HIDI2C for input peripherals whenever possible for
better power efficiency, but this is not a requirement".

But in any case - wakeup from this type of device is a grey area. They
require that internal touchpads connected to I2C be a wake source and
also USB touchpads.
There is nothing on that page prescribing the behavior for an "internal"
USB touchpad.

Reading between the lines given the intent, I would argue if such a
design is created or exists internal USB mice and touchpads should also
be a wake up.
