GET OUT OF THAT HOUSE!!!!
If you're using a "laser" mouse (the correct term is, i believe, optical mouse)
I have the new laser mouse from logitech, NOT an optical, but maybe the problem appears there too?
Sometimes not so often like every 5h the pointer starts floating away, sometimes when i move the mouse it comes back but sometimes it takes like 30 sec! and the precision can be bad too sometimes, like a "little float".
My computer is 1meter from the mouse, so i don't blame it on a bad connection.
I HATE it when i play poker online and cant call...or raise..
I guess it could be something with the USB, or with the bluetooth key, energy savings, i have tried some but its still there...
Howdy, butibum, and welcome to A2K - glad you found the place, and hope you find it worth your while to stick around. Sounds to me like what you've got going on there is IRQ Confilct - might wanna snoop around some down that alley.
... It was the mousepad, old and shiny from use and the light from the optical mouse was bouncing around on it and off of it ...
It took me two years to figure that out!!
... or it could be the surface you're using for the optical mouse is too reflective ...
