Dual screen mouse fixed to Media Center

I have a Asus Eeebox 1501 media center. I have a 15" TFT for music (Foobar2000) and interetsurfing, internetgames etc.

I also have a Philips LCD connected via HDMI. Everything works great. I have forced media center to use HDMI audio, and everything else to use HDMI for the stereo set-up (TV and musik are seperate audio set-up).

The only minor problem is that when I have media center i full screen on the TV, The mouse is fixed to the TV, and can't move to the 15" inch monitor.

Is there a cure for that?

Press the Windows key on your keyboard to release the mouse.

Thanks i worked, but introduced another problem. The MCE remote don't work when the mouse is released with the Windows key, and the TV turns black for at couple of seconds, so it's not really a practical solution.

I have read about a program called "The Maxifier" would that be a better solution? Anyone tried it?

Both windows key and maxifier is giving problems. They both work, but when watching live TV from digital tuner, the picture is flickering a lot. It's imposibble to watch TV this way, so maxifier and windows key do not work in my system. I don't know if its general but with nvidia ion it's not working properly. If it worked, the maxifier would have been er real killer app for win 7 media center users (if using two screens)

sounds like windows is seeing them as 'full screen' apps which u ant do much about to free your mouse apart from run them in a window each time.
