  1. Problems with Mouse and keyboard


    I have been having this problem where I am idle for a few moments whilst watching a YouTube video or a tv show on my computer. My keyboard and mouse stop working. both are connected and show as connected on the PC but none of the keys on the keyboard work and with the mouse I can only move my cursor and use the scroll wheel. when I hover over Icons, nothing highlights. To be able to do anything I have to force restart my computer. Thanks In advance to anyone who can help me out.

    :)
