    Smiddy, I found the solution on a Windows forum. Here it is:

    I'll bold the steps, it's very simple ... Click on your start Icon at the bottom left-hand of your screen, and choose "Control Panel" to begin... then follow the bolded instructions below. It should work. When you are finished, restart. Send me a PM if it doesn't and I'll see what I can do. . xx tal

    I had the same problem with an ASUS P7H55-M.

    No mouse/keyboard after shutdown and restart.

    Apparantly this is an issue with the hybrid shutdown option in Windows 10.

    The following workaround worked for me:

    You can disable Hybrid shutdown (or "fast startup", as it is called in Win 10) via Control Panel:

    - open "Power Options"
    - open "Choose what the power buttons do"
    - click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable"
    - uncheck "Turn on fast startup"

    From now on Win 10 will initialize all driver on startup. This will take longer but it works.

    Oh, shoot, you have WIN 10, so no Start button/icon.

    If you don't know how to get to the Control Panel, just do a search from the desktop menu and you should find it that way. I forgot for a moment, that W8 and W10 have the 'new' sucky desktop designed for touch.

    OOPS! xx

    I'm 14 hours behind, and it's late.. well early morning.  I'll check in tomorrow - hope this works for you!  It's not always cut and dried, but usually these small, yet irritating, bugs can get worked out.

    Any luck with that Smiddy?

    Windows 8.0, 8.1 didn't have a Start button. The Start button was 'reinstated' in Win 10.
  • talesin
    Oh, thanks, incognito! I have had the misfortune of using W8, but not W10. That's good to know! Now I understand why so many folks with W8 took that offer for the *free* buggy upgrade.

    sowhatnow , it is a mouse that keeps dying not a cat ,duh!.!.....LOL

    Thanks talesin for your suggestions however maybe my pc is as old as me , or as senile as me , I`m not sure which , however it seems to be behaving itself lately , touch wood and cross my fingers and hope the Borg dies.

    The next time my son visits I will show him all your tips , he is the one who set up my pc for us.

    Thanks again everyone

    lol, I know, um it was sort of a joke. cats have 9 lives, computer mice that die multiple times might, cats mice .... haha.

    well, like i said, sometimes people don't get me. I live on the 'far side' of humor I guess....

    Are you running Wizmouse? That program is not compatible with Windows 10.

    Also, is it bluetooth?

    Bluetooth is terrible for mouse/keyboard, buggy.

    Better a dedicated wireless dongle.
