For some reason, the webpage I am on, keeps slipping.(I have to move it back a little)
Any idea why?

Logitech mouse with the free rolling mousewheel? If so try clicking it into the other mode where it moves in steps.

I seem to be getting latency when writing a post. its as if the forum software is missing out letters because I'm typing too quickly, and there is no chance of that with my one finger method :angry:

Is this what you mean ? or is it like my Samsung Galaxy tablet that seem to "bounce" the web page ?

Using IE? I know others have reported the same problem.

Had this with my logitech wireless mouse on the PC. Turned out to be a flat battery :) I can only assume that it was sending the 'mouse wheel is moving' signals as a cry for help much as a drowning man waves to try to catch attention.

Try firefox to clear typing fault.

Or if you want to keep using IE, click the editor back to plain text (top left button).
Typing issues are gone and if you want to put in smileys etc. briefly toggle it back on.

Works for IE 11 on Win 8.1

I've had a few different sets of wireless keyboards and mice over the years and all were more trouble than they were worth.

I'd change the batteries. If that doesn't work, I'd change back to wired units.

I found the Apple keyboard ate batteries, and took to pulling them when it wasn't in use. I don't think the batteries in the mouse went but after 3 changes on the keyboard I reverted back to the wired versions.

Aha, maybe that's it. Tbh, I never turn off either keyboard or mouse. It's not too much of a problem ,as it is basically new. Sounds like I'll have to change batteries soon, then get in the habit of switching them off .

Apple sure jinxed themselves with that 'it just works' slogan, didn't they. :D

It's a standing joke in our house whenever the iPad is playing up . . . . 'of course it hasn't crashed, it can't have because it just works' :lol:

Try using the mouse on a different surface (put a piece of paper under it, or something like that). I've seen lots of problems with optical mice where the surface they're being used on seems to reflect the light badly and cause the cursor to move by itself. Even when used with certain kinds of "mouse mat" this can be an issue.
