Hello everyone,
I just got the new Bluetooth Logitech keyboard and mouse combo (Here's the page for it just in case) and I connected the Bluetooth adaptor for it and installed everything without problems. However, after this installation, when i put the computer into standby mode, only the screen shuts off but the computer remains on and running. It came to my mind that this new hardware is probably causing the problem, and when i disconnected the Bluetooth adaptor from the USB drive the computer went into standby fully and without problems. I realize it is this new installation that is causing the problem, and i would like to know if there is a way for me to still be able to go into standby fully without having to disconnect the Bluetooth adaptor every time.

Thank you so much,
Happy New Year!

Hello and :thumbsup: to BC


first I would like to note, You're not alone with this issue,

I took some time to venture onto the forums for logitech and I found atleast a couple of other people who had experience this same problem

I wish that the support techs actually took time to reply to those, As it would make your problem so much smoother to deal with

First thing take a look at this.

I realize this isn't exactly your issue but it might help solve it entirely, for all I know

Personally, I think its a problem with the drivers of your new wireless mouse/keyboard, its either that, Or the laser that guides those two is messing with signals going to your computer,

Ensure that you have everything updated with this combo and that all the settings are right, If this does not help you at all, come back and say what all happened or what didnt' happen and we'll go from here :flowers:

I've found that the new Logitech SetPoint software is a real PITA. So, I've downgraded to the last version of their Mouseware and all my problems have vanished!

Here's a google for Logitech Mouseware. I used the 3rd hit for my download (the MajorGeeks one): http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=l...G=Google+Search

Well its not looking good so far..
First i went to the logitech link that you gave, did what it said, and it didn't help at all.
Then i went to the majorgeeks link and installed the new software and that didn't help.
Then i just got rid of the software all together and that didn't help either.
I also realized that the screen shut off like i said, but about 10 sec later it turns back on, i don't know if that changes the situation but i'm just letting you know.
So i don't know what more i can do to make it work.

Thanks :thumbsup:

I have heard.. and you may have heard this as well, That the solution to everything is a little duct tape, And a sledge hammer :thumbsup: Might just be me though
haha, Just a litlte humor for you :flowers:

You might just have to unplug and replug back in teh adapter everytime, might be something hardware related causing this, if the software parts didn't work


have you tried maybe downgrading software?, For whatever reason this helps some cases

Just a thought

I have tried downgrading the software, and in that case the screens stays off but the computer is still on.
Well i guess i just have to unplug it each time.


Thanks for the suggestions

Since there's video issues also, it may be advisable to uninstall your video drivers and install the latest version available from the chipset manufacturer's website (generally www.nvidia.com or www.ati.com )
