    Sometimes they just start disconnecting from the receiver while in whatever mode they use for "sleep", that's what the Logitech Combo I had did.

    Batteries were good. I has to be something in the keyboard itself, or the way it communicates. The good news is that my new computer software and hardware build don't seem to be at fault.

    Well, only in relation to the KB/M Combo.

    Keep the old Combo and try it on another system, it may be just the way the hardware settings fell when it was detected, maybe it interferes with something at random.
