10.3: IntelliPoint driver removes Apple mouse acceleration
Authored by: macmurph on Dec 10, '03 05:55:33PM

I use the IntelliPoint driver 2.1.0. I like its features but I dont like some of the side effects. I, too, noticed that there is a conflict between the mouse speed you set in the Apple Mouse Preference Pane and the Microsoft Preference Pane. The problem is that one preference isn't overriding the other. Sometimes Apples setting takes over... like when the login window is displayed. Other times, the Microsoft setting kicks in. Basically, I wish my mouse went even faster, and I wish one setting definitely could override the other at all times.

Next, this is a major problem... when I close my powerbook lid, then unplug my MS mouse just as the system is going to sleep, the computer will not wake up. There is a problem with the USB driver that causes the machine to seize up while it is going to sleep.

I haven't tried the new IntelliPoint driver because I read some bad reviews about it on

To answer someone elses question above, you can set the mouse acceleration from the command line. I saw the hint here or at a while back.
