Hi, I am having the same issue, I just upgraded to 1.4.10. The server is Ubuntu Linux 12.04 and the client is WinXP. When the XP machine is locked or nobody has logged in yet, I am unable to move the mouse to it. I have to use the mouse and keyboard plugged into it. Once I have logged in/unlocked it, it works as expected. I checked the settings in case something changed upon upgrading it and everything looks ok. "Start Synergy after logging in" is unchecked, "Automatically start/stop the server/client" is checked, "Hide when server/client starts" is checked and it is running as a service.

Also, I can no longer send Ctrl+Alt+Del to the client machine, this used to work fine.

Thank you, Gabriel

I confirm that downgrading to 1.4.9 works, I can send Ctrl+Alt+Del to the client again and when the screen is locked/not logged in yet the mouse can move to the client machine and the keyboard works too.
