    Hi,

    Something is stealing focus, and it may be the cause of both problems. Do
    you run any background apps, like distributed computing, P2P, or IM
    software?

    Hi,

    I don't know that either of those would cause this problem. What else has
    been installed?

    Is it one particular screen saver, or does it do this for all of them?

    I am having the same problem although it is not on my dell laptop. The
    screensaver stopped working within the last week. At the same time, my
    mouse also went so I started using the USB mouse that I have for my
    laptop. However, the screensaver stopped working PRIOR to my installing
    this new mouse.

    Any thoughts?
