I have a second wireless USB Keyboard and mouse in my living room as an extention to my PC. After about 5 mins it goes to sleep, and I have to go back to the office and unplug/replug the USB transmitter so it will wake up.. Is there a way to have it on all the time? I didn't have this problem with XP, it stayed on all the time.

3DPiper – I think this might be more of a mouse/keyboard problem than an OS problem. Have you checked with the mouse manufacturer’s support site?

It is a Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse combo:


Wireless Laser Desktop 4000


There are no specific drivers that I know of, I just hooked it up and it worked..

Under WinXP I had no problems, but we've recently made the move up to Vista and suddenly the wireless keyboard and mouse radio turns off every 5 mins..
