Program refuses screen saver to activate

I've run into a problem I can't figure out how to solve, I'm hoping that someone can help me, as I can't get help with the program in regards to this issue, which is why some programs trigger the screen saver not to activate ?

Which program is it?

You're not using a wireless mouse are you? These are known to stop the screensaver.

I am using a wireless mouse, it's an editing program. It doesn't happen with all programs, specific ones, and I recently installed one that is disabling the mouse, any idea how to solve ?
