    I find that every few minutes my computer switches out of Screensaver and back to the Desktop. I cannot see any obvious cause for this. It is not an e-mail checker. Any ideas please.

    Strange how about if you send the moniter into powerdown mode?

    Will the screen come back?

    Yes it comes out of powerdown mode as well, although not as often as it does when it is in screensaver. When it comes back to the desktoip it always has the right click box open.

    Thanks for all the replies Guys. I do have spyware software installed. I still haven't found a reason for it, although I am beginning to suspect that my cordless mouse may have something to do with it.

    I think when he said he had spyware software installed that he ment like a program to scan and get rid of it.

    Yes, sorry if I didn't explain myself properly that is what I meant. I have all the usual sypware removers installed. However, I have changed my cordless mouse back to a corded mouse and I am no longer getting the problem of coming out of screensaver or powerdown. I think I will return the mouse to Belkin.
