One possible cure for a flakey USB wireless mouse
Authored by: simbalala on Nov 20, '08 03:47:55PM

I've had problems time to time where mouse clicks failed. I could move the mouse around but no clicks registered. When I was using a BlueTooth keyboard and a Bluetooth mouse I never found a good solution, sometimes just fooling around with Force Quit would restore things.

Now I have an aluminum USB keyboard and unplugging the keyboard does cure a click failure with the mouse. I switched back to a wired mouse as well since I figure there's not a lot of need for wireless when I'm sitting in front of a 20" display with a wired keyboard.

It's a rare problem, it seldom happens much with this current setup, it was a bigger issue when everything was BlueTooth.
