If it just sits idle does it still lock up in the same amount of time? Usually a hard lockup like that is a hardware issue. Starting from a cold system if the lockup happens at nearly exactly the...

If the WiFi card is going out then it may have nothing to do with the mice. You should probably ask the moderator to move this to the Networking and Sharing forum on the board as you will get more...

New version of FolderSave
