I'm currently using an external keyboard and mouse on my PC. Last night I locked it but when I unlocked it this morning, both of them are not working anymore. I went into Device Manager and it says: Device is working properly. I reinstalled my drivers but no luck there. The only time it worked is when I restarted everything. What did this happen?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If these are wireless, it may be they need batteries or recharging is cordless.  You may also want to try removing the USB plug they use and reset that to see if it will reset itself. You may also want to check your power settings. If you use hibernate or put it in sleep mode, it may be powering down the USB port as well

    Check whether you updated the system recently (while the tag indicated Windows 10) and the update is completed fully. Try to start the PC in Safe mode and check if that works. You can try external mouse & keyboard to another system, if any.
