Windows 7: Mouse Capture Addon?

Mouse Capture Addon?

I have three monitors driven by two computers. The center and right monitors are on the main machine which runs Windows 7, the left is Fedora 15. I use Synergy to allow a single mouse/keyboard to run both machines.

The issue I have is most full-screen applications (such as games, but anything really) cannot account for Synergy's behavior upon the mouse hitting the screen edge. As the center monitor is the primary on the Windows 7 machine, this means that any time I let the mouse hit the left edge of the screen the game loses focus (an artifact of Synergy that I cannot seem to turn off), which causes a crash to desktop with annoying regularity.

So, my two options are to either find an application that either literally or logically "grabs" the mouse and attaches it exclusively or move the primary display to the right screen. For ergonomics reasons I would really prefer to not do this, but I can if required.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Is there any software I am not aware that could help?

Never mind, this was a simple case of failure to RTFM. For anyone else who ever has this problem, scroll lock is the answer.
