    stuck mouse
    I've been using a MS (basic optical v2.0) with my mini (Snow Leopard) from day 1, never had problems...

    Recently I noticed that the mouse cursor stay stuck at the top left hand corner after a restart or startup...The only way to correct this is to unplug and plug in again.

    The only changes recently was the latest SL update...can this be why?

    Any advice?

    Thx

    Either that or you have a defective mouse. Do you have an opportunity to try it out on other computers, be them Mac or PC. Just to see if it's your computer or the mouse itself that is playing up.

    To me, its sounds like the system isn't registering the mouse at startup. The mouse seems alright if you can plug it in after startup and use it. I've heard of rumours of different mice acting strange when booting in 64 bit snow leopard...

    Well, mouse worked fine on SL...I only noticed this problem lately...did the latest OSx update about a week ago.

    The mouse works fine on all the other machines (linux, windows) I've tested it on...it's just with my specific mini at startup.

    If it's indeed the update, how the heck do I fix it?

    I'd give the combo updater a go.

    Sometimes a second download in a row fixes issues for some reason!

    I think the good old format/re install snow leopard will be on the cards VERY soon...I've also noticed some of the issues I had a short while back regarding performance, is back (this after I installed some extra RAM).

    I think it's best to start from scratch.

    Go for it! Re-installing usually fixes most minor bugs/glitches.
