    Just installed a Microsoft cordless 5000 mouse. My monitor will no longer
    turn off in the power saver mode. I tried to make a new power saver setting
    and that did not help. I can unplug the usb for the mouse transmitter and it
    will start to work again. Plug it back in and the problem comes back. I can
    plug in two other corded mouse's I have and they work fine with the monitor.
    It just seems to be the cordless that keeps the monitor from turning off. I
    am running Vista, I have screen saver set to none. It is just set up to turn
    off the monitor after 10 minutes. Any Ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    I have just installed the same mouse on my computer and have the sam
    monitor issue. I can get it to turn off by unplugging the mouse fro
    the USB port - all other attempts to get the timer to work fail
    My solution was to go into MSCONFIG and under startup, turn of
    Microsoft Intellipoint. Monitor functions seem to be ok now

  3. Try turning the mouse upside down.
    This is not a joke.
