    Last June, I installed Vista Beta and bought Microsoft USB wireless Keybord
    and Mouse 6000.
    The Screen saver and Power options did not work.
    Th same problem with Vista RC1.
    The same problem with with Vista RC2
    The same problem with Vista RTM Ultimate.

    But, now, it works . . . at last!

    The only thing I installed is this update coming from Windows

    Microsoft - Other Hardware - HID Non-User Input Data Filter

    Installation date: 2007-02-05 20:13

    Installation status: Successful

    Update type: Optional

    Microsoft Other Hardware sofware update released in January, 2007

    I just bought a new Dell with Vista and noticed my screen saver did not work.
    After reading some of this group's posts, I disconnected the Microsoft
    wireless mouse I was using and then tested the screen saver- it worked.

    Then I connected a Logitech wireless mouse that I use on my laptop and then
    tested the screen saver. With the Logitech wireless mouse the screen saver
    works fine.
