Windows 7: Weird Alt key sleep & UAC mouse behavior

Weird Alt key sleep & UAC mouse behavior

So this is just weird.

1) When I come out of sleep, the keyboard acts like my ALT key is depressed. If it press alt a few times normally it clears up and behaves as normal. No UAC and sleep works fine

2) When playing games, if I have UAC turned on the mouse gets stuck accelerating further and further until a mere tap of the mouse results in the game's camera spinning wildly 360 degrees over and over. When I disable UAC the mouse behaves just fine

I recently upgraded my computer and I am using the same kb/mouse as my old one. I have 2 sets of both actually and swapping between the PCs doesnt help, never had this on my old Windows 7. My old pc never had UAC on, but I was giving it a another try this time around

Well for #2 I'm not sure if you mean that weird mouse movement happens if you have UAC turned on at all or if as you're playing the game and the UAC window pops up, THEN it starts acting strange. Assuming you have the latest drivers for the mouse, I'm not sure what could cause that. And it happens to all games whether they're in fullscreen or not?

#1 is extremely interesting. If it isn't wireless, maybe something's just wrong with it, heh. Try it on another computer perhaps and see how it works?

Sorry, forgot the bottom part of your post altogether. So you have two of those mice and two of those keyboards, and each act up in the same ways? Also, could we know what you upgraded exactly? And even if you turned UAC off, you say that the keyboard would still do that regardless, or am I misinterpreting you?

A better explanation of 2:

Currently have UAC turned off. I can load the game and play. You use the mouse to pan your camera

When I turn UAC on, I of course have to reboot, after coming back into windows I launch the game. Immediately my keyboard behaves like the alt key is down. I push alt and can now log in to the game with my user/pw. When I try to move my camera I start to spin insanely out of control. At no point was UAC prompting me.

Exit game, turn off UAC, reboot, reload game and everything is back to normal.


Now I'm leaning towards Logitech drivers being the cause since they have 'game detection'

Did you update/roll back the drivers for the mouse? Any changes?

What about the keyboard, did you try it(them?) out on another computer? Perhaps a driver change for it, as well?

When I uninstall the drivers it works fine. This was a fresh Windows 7 so I really didnt have a roll back, only 2 versions have been on here, the latest, and the same as my old Windows 7.

The only downside to uninstalling drivers is I cant set binding on the mouse keys, but at least I'm fairly confident its an issue with logitech, will try contacting their support.

Thanks
