    microsoft keyboard will not turn off screensaver unless I unplug usb

    Screensaver is on. I touch a button on the keyboard and nothing happens. If I unplug the USB radio and replace it, then it works.

    Hi ironfist.

    Please fill in System Specs, include Windows 10 version and build number at

    System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums

    So I take it this is a wireless keyboard. Have you checked manufacturer for correct driver? In device manager, on this keyboard, right click, properties, power management tab, uncheck "Allow computer to turn off" and ensure check mark is in "Allow this device to wake up computer"
