    Fixed my problem.Interesting.
    If you run an "Optical Wireless" or "Wireless Mouse", and the batteries run down in it, your Screensaver won't cycle.
    (Woody just wrote an article about Wireless equippment and if you use it you'd better keep a big supply of Batteries handy)
    However we can all learn from this experience.If someone's screensavers stop cycling,look at their mouse!

    Now that I don't understand. I believe , but don't understand how that would have anything to do with the screensaver. I know if the mouse moves it brings it out of screensaver mode, but I don't get how the mouse not moving would stop the screensaver from working. Or maybe I am misunderstanding what you mean by cycling. I'm thinking you mean the screensaver is not cycling fron one picture or position to the next picture or position. Maybe you mean cycling on and off. Or maybe I'm just <img src=/S/bananas.gif border=0 alt=bananas width=33 height=35>

    Hi Cowboy, no the "Screen Savers would not turn on automatically after (I have set for 15 minuets).
    If you have a "Wireless Mouse", and your batteries get low,low enough,your ScreenSavers will not turn on.In other words,there must be some signal generated from the Wirless mouse to the Cpu to trigger that event!
    All new to me too,but a good lesson!
    You'll never find an article on it in the Microsft KB,
