defaults write -globalDomain com.apple.mouse.scaling -float 9.9
works for me. I shut down computer (Powerbook Pismo) or remove USB Microsoft mouse and I still have set settings in

.GlobalPreferences.plist

No need for installing extension package you describe.

On my G4's, both at home and work, anything that affects the USB mouse loses the speed settings - sleetp, USB switchbox, unplug and replug ... whatever. I do something to it, it comes back at half speed.

Sigh.

With regards to the mouse speed dropping after sleep, I've discovered that there is a glitch in some 3rd party screen savers that can cause this. I started using Xirtam a couple of days ago. Noticed the mouse slow-down randomly occuring and finally traced it to my screen saver. When I switched to Sproingees the problem disappeared.

HTH,
Eric.

This kext has been the most elegant solution for me, my G4, and my Kennsington USB mouse.

The biggest problems I have with the defaults command is that opening the mouse control panel resets them, you have to log out & log back in for the change to take place, and games such as Q3 and RtCW change the setting.

Check out http://tunnels.tripod.com/mac.html for a preferencepane that will let you set your souse rediculously fast! I like setting it between 2 and 2.5
