If i am away from my computer for an amount of time my screen turns off. I then shake the mouse to wake it back up, however clicks don't work. The mouse moves around, and the keyboard works.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Are you saying you have to reboot your PC for the clicks to work or is it just a delay before they work again? Is it wired mouse, wireless? Any additional software relating to it? USB or PS2? – Dave Aug 10 '12 at 12:01
