Wow, that's a tough one. I guess you will have to find a way the underlaying operating system notifies your application that a mouse event just happen.

Now, if you think it over, an screen saver is started by the OS after some time of inactivity, the screen saver application does not know when it is going to be started, and once the screen saver application is running if it receices a mouse event it simply ends execution, but it is the active application when the mouse event happens.

What exactly do you want to do?
