I was thinking... I could place my comp near my bed, so I could lay in it and work on the comp, but the mouse'd be a problem. Then I thought of making a small case-thing that'd integrate the keyboard and the mouse, like it's usually set up on a desk. Small bugger, is that they're bound to fall out, and that it'd need a system to prevent that. Now my question is, what's the most efficient and cheapest way of doing this? I got wood to do it with.

im not really sure what you are talking about constructing, but you could use a wireless trackball for the bed.

or did you want something that has the kboard and mouse on it?

umm. small piece of plywood.

screw the kboard directly to it.
screw wireless trackball directly to it, because mice dont work well if they cant move.

of course this would suck for gaming but thats why we have regular mice.

The problem is that there should be a way to keep the keyboard and mouse of falling out, yet remain usable.

Keyboard's easy. Just screw it onto it, like Splinter said. I thought 'bout limiting the amount of wire for the mouse that comes into it, but that either interferes with how you'll use the mouse, or it'll still keep the mouse dropping out and hanging onto the wire. And to hell with giant magnets. Dunno if those can be trusted with these things.

just build wals on the top and sides and leave the bottom open for your hand to fit.

For the keyboard I´d attach a wire in both ends and run it trough two loops attached in the top edge of the compartment so yo could change the angle of the keybard and move it a bit

And it won't help the mouse, but I think I'm going to go with the idea of giving it a bit of wire inside, and putting rings at both ends of the wire, so it'll stay put and do the same for the keyboard, so I can take both out when I feel like it.

I'm not too fond of wireless stuff, as they need batteries and rarely work right. Dad used to have a wireless optical mouse. Didn't work after it was used for five minutes.

I have a Logitech Cordless MX Duo wireless keyboard/mouse combo. I havent had a single problem with it. The mouse has rechargable batteries that charge at the wireless reciever. The keyboard had 2 AA i think but i havent had to change those since I got it about a year ago.
