I have been running Synergy for ~6 months, and within the past two weeks, I've run across a painful bug twice that I haven't seen until now... I can't move my mouse from the server machine (Win7 64-bit) to the client machine (Win XP). I've tried restarting the appropriate Synergy service on each machine to remedy the problem, but the only thing that seems to fix it is rebooting the server machine. I can get to the client machine by using the Hot Keys I've set up, and the log output on both machines shows the client connecting just fine to the server. Does anybody know of a solution that doesn't require me to reboot the server machine?

Had the same problem. Debugging-level made it clear to me: screen locked for whatever reason...
simple solution: define a hotkey, that turns screen-locking off
