Sometimes I can, sometimes I can't get the system to come put of the screensaver mode by moving/clicking the mouse. It does come out with clicking the spacebar on the keyboard. The mouse is an old PS2, ball mouse, using the microsoft drivers. The system is set to awake with the mouse or the keyboard. However, since it hasn't gone to sleep (only into screensaver mode) I don't think this is the problem. If, by moving the mouse, I do get the system to come out of screensaver, the mouse cursor is on the screen but there is no control. On the keyboard, I can use the tab key to change the focus so I can turn the system off. The only other keys that work, besides the space bar & tab key (tab shift) is the "windows" key. Any ideas on how to get the mouse to work? And get a system return from the screensaver? Oh, I substituted a laser mouse for the old mouse, but the problem is the same.
