Hi, just installed Ubuntu

my USB Mouse (scanner mouse from Brookstone) turns off every 2 secs whenever I stop using it. It wakes up if I just touch any button, but its super annoying and would love if I could disable it.

Some searching around tells me its a feature of "PowerNap" which comes with "Laptop-Mode" or something like that...but I just installed Ubuntu (32-Bit) and pretty sure I've never installed anything like that.

HELP! MUCH Thanks in Advance!
