I'm using the Logitech MX3200 wireless laser keyboard and mouse with Vista Home Premium. Since I started using this keyboard, my screensaver will not activate. The keyboard has a "hotkey" (F11 in conjunction with FN), that supposedly activates the screensaver, however, it doesn't seem to do anything. If I go into the software that came with the set, and change the function of F11 to "LCD Alarm" instead of "Activate screensaver", the screen saver will sometimes come on by itself, after the 10 minutes I have it set for. I have to make this adjustment each time I turn on my system. Any Ideas would be appreciated.
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.

No maybee if you use a logitech one but undoubtfull due to the voltage usage from usb power to battery would be to complex along with the wiring .... just buy a new wireless keyboard mouse combo be less hastle
Yes, I have a solution. Throw the bugger away! This has been the biggest piece of garbage I have ever bought. It has loads of unecessary features like using the buttons for other things. I am sick of it asking me if I want to assign an action to a key. I want a bog standard wireless keyboard. Yes, I'll assign an action alright. I'll throw it through the bloody window!!!!!!
Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button
on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to
the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button
and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you
change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud
Depending on the type of surface your wireless mouse is on, then it's a possibility. I find with mine, when I've got a movie up on my TV (From my computer) and my mouse is on the coffee table (which is very reflective) my mouse will stay on constantly. When I move it back to my desk it'll shut off after a few seconds of inactivity.
So if your desk is reflective, you can try putting it on something that isn't to see if it helps.
