Re: microsoft wireless 4000
Screen saver mode, as you know, is entered when the computer senses no activity (including mouse) for a defined period of time. for some reason, the computer thinks there's been some kind of activity. If you have an extreamly sensitive mouse, vibrations could be being picked up "tricking" the computer into thinking there is activity.
The other possibility is that the computer might not be able to respond to the mouse if it went into screen saver mode (perhaps a preference setting with the wireless mouse) and has decided that while operating using a wireless mouse screen saver will be deactivated. Look into your preferences or settings relating to the wireless mouse.

Try downloading the driver in your computer again. The registry file can be corrupt from other downloads. It has happened to mine twice so far in two years The drivers can be found at this link below...Remember I do not know what model you have so a 3000 & a 4000 model link for each are showing for you below here
Just to clarify, this is a wireless optical mouse, right? Please try the steps below:
1. Use fresh batteries. 2. Make sure that the mouse is turned on. 3. Check if there's a connect button on the wireless receiver and underneath the mouse. If there is, try holding down the two connect buttons at the same time for five seconds and then release them both. 4. Try moving the mouse. 5. Make sure that there are no possible wireless interference between the wireless receiver and mouse like the base of a cordless phone, cell phone etc.
If same problem occur after doing the steps below, then you may want to contact the manufacturer for RMA. This Microsoft 4000 has a three year limited warranty.
Try this - Go to control panel > mouse > hardware tab > properties > power management tab Make sure the entry "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby" is checked.
If you meant that your screen saver doesnt come on because the mouse is plugged in, it could be because the surface on which your mouse is rested is uneven or extremely smooth, causing the mouse to move, or that the mouse sensitivity properties are set very high. When not in use, try placing the mouse on a piece of dark cloth and see if this helps. Or in the steps mentioned above, make sure "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby" is UNchecked. Note that you cannot use the mouse to get out of screen saver mode in this option. you will have to tap the spacebar..
If you are using Vista Operating System this is
a common problem. !. Go to MY COMPUTER and RIGHT CLICK on it. 2. Then CLICK on PROPERTIES. 3. Next CLICK on DEVICE
MANAGER. 4.Next CLICK on CONTINUE.. 5. CLICK on the HID HUMAN
INTERFACE DEVICE +. 6.Right CLICK on the HID NON-USER INPUT DATA FILTER. 7. Click on UPDATE DRIVER SOFTWARE. 8. When the screen comes
up CLICK on SEARCH AUTOMATICALLY for UPDATED DRIVER SOFTWARE.
When finished the screen saver should work properly. Bud
I'm having pretty much the same problem with my Microsoft Wireless 4000 mouse and my hp-compaq 8510p laptop. If I shut my machine down, or restart, my mouse no longer works. I have to uninstall/reinstall the Intellipoint software. The synaptics touch pad continues to work, but the mouse fails.
