Default Gamepad troubles

When I'm playing games with a gamepad the screensaver activates after 20 min. I found out that my computer doesn't allow my gamepad to wake the computer up unlike my keyboard and mouse.
In device management the mouse and keyboard have a power managment option in properties and have allow this device to wake up the computer selected.
My gamepad is located in Human intervace devices - HID-compliant game controller but there is no power management tab to turn on wake up option.
Anyone know how to change this? It's pretty annoying having the screensaver activate in the middle of a game.
I'm using my ps2 gamepad with a ps2 gamepad usb converter.
