Wireless Keyboard Problem

I've just started using the remote destop with my lpatop and the main rig in Win XP, I am however experiencing some problems. After I have logged out of remote desktop (with the laptop) and I try to log in to the PC I can't use the keyboard. I click on the password box and type in the password but nothing happens. I know that the keyboard is sending signals as it is wireless and has a signal received indicator. Nothing will allow me to use the keyboard again until a restart.
 
Systems:

Main rig

Athlon 2400+
ASUS A7V8X mobo
Memorex RF5500 keyboard (and mouse)
Win XP Pro (not 100% updated but a week or two ago)

Laptop

1.5GHz centrino
Win XP Home (same update status as the PC)

Is the receiver connected via USB, like Gyration products?  If so, enable legacy USB devices in the BIOS.  You should also make sure you have eneded the remote desktop application, and not just disconnected (log out of the main pc).

Yes it is connected via USB, how do I enable the legacy USB device in the BIOS.  I have logged out completely before disconnecting.

It's a setting in one of the BIOS screens - take a look.
