  1. Hi, I hope someone can help me with a small but annoying problem. When my pc is in screensaver mode and i wake it up with the mouse it will shut off my browseror any other running applications. If i have no browser or app's open it will give me the shut down screen, i have to click cancel and all is well. This only happens with the mouse not the key board. Im runnimg Win2000Pro(all spk's) and using a Microsoft intellimouse Explorer 2.0

    Thanks
    Danny

    You might want to run that mouse without the Intellisoft drivers.
    W2K's own built-in drivers are more than good enough, unless you need some specific feature for your M$-mouse.
    I run the Logitech MX700 on W2K/SP4 like that, and it's perfect.

    that behavior you described is identical to the effects of pressing alt+F4. look around for an offending setting or key binding.

    Please help, I am having the same problem described above and unfortunately do not know how to "look around for an offending setting or key binding". Could someone assist this beginner?

    did you create one? did you install any special mouse drivers/software?

    Well, Since I don't know what it is, I guess I didn't create one. :) Installed the intellipoint software that came with the mouse. Microsoft Wireless.

    Mouse bring out of standby

    Try going to Control Panel | Mouse | Hardware | Properties | Power Management and check 'Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby'.

    May cure it.
