I've had an intermittent problem that I've not been able to nail down to any particular cause:
When gaming, everything will be going well, until I move the mouse while holding down keyboard buttons. When I move the mouse, it's as though the keyboard cuts out. I tried to replicate the problem in other software (Word, notepad, etc) and indeed, when I hold a key to get a string of characters forming, moving the mouse will often interrupt the flow of characters.
I have plenty of system resources, so I have a hard time believing this is my system getting bogged down. However, I am using on-board graphics. Perhaps the increased load during gaming has an influence?
I've changed the batteries in my keyboard, tried disconnecting and reconnecting both devices, plugging the receiver into a different USB port, uninstalled and reinstalled Setpoint, and I've even intalled an older version of Setpoint (found v. 4.8 floating around). I'm at a loss and am looking for any suggestions.
Edit - After some more investigation, I think this has something to do with the connection. My motherboard only has one PS/2 connector, and it's for a keyboard (purple). The receiver has a USB connector for the keyboard, and a PS/2 connector for the mouse. I have the green PS/2 connector plugged into my purple port, as well as the USB plug plugged in. I'm going to try to get converters and see if that helps. Unplugging the PS/2 and going off just USB made the problem worse.

- Power drain both keyboard and mouse by holding any key on the device for 20 seconds without the batteries.
- Plug the receiver to a USB port ( no need to connect the green PS2 plug ).
- Reset the receiver by holding the connect button on the receiver for 20 seconds.
- Reconnect the mouse by pressing the connect button on the receiver for a second and then press the connect button under the mouse for a second.
- Reconnect the keyboard by pressing the connect button on the receiver for a second and then press the connect button on the back of the keyboard for a second.
