Microsoft 3000 wireless mouse problem

My wireless mouse disables the screensaver and sends the computer to hibernation instead of the screensaver coming on. I know it is the mouse because when I remove it the screensaver works fine. I called Microsoft when I first bought it and was walked through a fix. Obviously it wasn't a permanent fix since it is doing it again. Can anyone help me with this problem. Thank you.

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 for Mac - mouse will not work


At the back of the mouse, there will be small flushed 'reset' button. Press that. It resets and reconfigures the connection. If it still doesn't work, the mouse has gone bad.

have a nice day :)

Computer remains in sleep mode to conserve electricity


This is a known issue in Vista. Computers going into hibernation and then not waking up. I believe it was fixed with the Service Pack 1 distribution, but I'm not 100% certain.
I would recommend that you go into the power options from the control panel and disable hibernation. You can tell the computer to turn off the monitor and the hard drive after a period of time, but just don't leave hibernation enabled.

Monitor keeps hibernating, can't make it stop, pixel issue.


Hey,

I think this is more of a problem on your computer instead of the monitor, ofcourse you could try another monitor and see if the same happens. I suspect your computer goes into standby or hibernation on its own, and it does work fine if you reset the computer right?

if you go into power management again, disable or turn off hibernation completely, its on one of the pages.
Make sure its not set to standby, and also disable your screen saver.

Right click on desktop - properties - then screensaver. turn it to none.

Also you could look into the computer bios and make sure its not set to standby or hibernation from there. thats unlikely but you could check.

how to get into bios.. depends on the computer, right when you turn it on, on one of the corners of the screen you will get a message, press button to enter setup or bios. press that to enter bios when its presented.

look around the bios and poweroptions.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Screensaver is not coming on


This is a common issue which usually happens if there is a Wireless Mouse or Keyboard being used with the Notebook.
To confirm this, try unplug the Wireless Mouse/Keyboard and set the Screensaver time to 1 or 2 Minutes and the Screensaver should appear.
If this happens, you need to check if the PCM and DVDLauncher services are running in the background and disable them from Services window by stopping the Services and setting the Startup Type to Manual.
Now, connect the Wireless device back to the Notebook and visit the following website to find any Updates available.
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

The available Updates will be listed which you need to install in the Notebook to resolve the issue with the Screensaver.
Hope this helps....

Screen Saver no longer runs when Microsoft wireless mouse 3000 is installed.


this is a common problem when using wireless equipment in windows. Especially on Dell notebooks. The PCMService.exe program starts when the computer starts and interaction at some level between this and the Wireless reciever prevents the computer from becoming idle. Therefore, the screen saver and the other idle-related features do not start. this issue may also occur if the PCM and DVDLauncher services are running in the background. This issue also occurs in Windows Vista premium and in Windows Vista Ultimate because of the media center functionality that is built in.

Microsoft reccommends plugging in your wireless device and visiting http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ to get the "optional hardware update" named "Microsoft HID Non-User Input Data Filter." This should fix the problem.

Microsoft also reccommends two possible "workarounds" for this problem if you do not want to install the update or if the update does not work, both are relatively simple:

1- turn off the PCMService.exe program. to do this, first you open the system configuration (start->run->msconfig.exe). on the startup dab of the configuration window, click to clear the PCMService startup item check box. Apply, Close, and if/when prompted, restart your computer.
2- Remove the PowerDVD Software (not advised if you use this software for watching DVD's on your notebook). To do this, open the add or remove programs window (start->run->appwiz.cpl), locate PowerDVD, click change/remove, and follow the steps through for removal of the program.

ScreenSaver does not work


Unfortunately many programs "Interfere" with the Screen Saver.. certain programs actually "Disable" it. The only "Fix" as it were is some sort of "Work around" perhaps, another screen saver program may work? As a thought tho, have you had a look on the Microsoft hardware Forum site? Perhaps something there may shed some light on it?

I would remove the software for your keyboard. This will hand control of the screen saver back over to windows. Some keyboards come with third party software that conflicts with windows. If you want a functional set of "extra stuff" on your keyboard, then your best bet is to try one from another manufacturer.
