Well, you certainly have enough memory and remaining hard drive space along with decent graphics on that machine; so we can probably eliminate any of those as a cause. Thanks for posting back your specs by the way.

Is the cursor only disappearing when you're using CS6 or does it also happen with other applications? I'm assuming you've tried another mouse or trackpad? I've seen the cursor disappear once in awhile with certain apps especially when I'm using a BT mouse. I've had it disappear on me in Word 2011 when I was typing fast in a document but it was only momentary.

Something you may want to try (if you haven't already) is to do a PRAM reset first. If that doesn't work, try a SMC reset. The SMC reset is real easy to do with an iMac. Just shut down, pull the plug from the AC socket and let it remain that way for about 10 minutes. Plug it back in and boot up.

Lastly, boot your iMac to the recovery partition (command + r). Once in recovery, select utilities and Disk Utility. Verify the hard drive, and also repair permissions. You need to do both from recovery. Let us know if any of the above helps.
