Recommendations for wireless Keyboard/Mouse combo

I now think that my current wireless combo will have to be put into the spares cupboard and am looking for inspiration for a replacement set. Any suggestions/recommendations?

Jock1e. I have three PC's all with wireless keyboard and mouse and have not switched any of them of for .... yonks. I use rechargeable batteries as when I first purchased a wirless keyboard the general consensus was that the batteries did not last long. I would leave them switched on if you use the PC every day and frequently.

I've had the same keyboard as Jock1e now has for 9 months and I haven't changed the keyboard battery and it is still showing good and the mouse I've changed once.

Ok thanks for the information will keep them switched on.

It would Probably do more damage than good switching it off and on.

I have the same problem myself I could not sign in the other day because I could not remember my password.

Luckily I had it wrote down in a book just to be in the safe side.

Just had a thought.

I have 2 computers could I use a cable splitter of some sort to let me use both computer with the one wireless set up.

My logic says yes but what do you lads think.

Should be possible with a KVM switch. But I haven't used one for this purpose. Better ask some of the others.
