One possible cure for a flakey USB wireless mouse
Authored by: okachobi on Nov 21, '08 06:49:07AM

Another thing I've found works is to turn off the Airport wireless. I've seen this clear up the issue many times, and subsequently turning it back on after a moment continues to work.

Bluetooth and 802.11g/b use parts of the same wireless spectrum. Bluetooth tolerates this well, but it seems that in some cases the retransmissions and collisions get out of hand in the OS X implementation or in the wireless keyboard/mighty mouse firmware. I have not seen this issue for a while now, so it might have been fixed in.
