    mouse cursor freezes intermittently Thinkpad Laptop

    The mouse cursor freezes for a few seconds and it's a big problem. I tried to change my grub to:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash noapic nolapic"

    but that did not solve. By googling, theres all sorts of forums about Linux and mouse cursor freezing problems on Thinkpads. I need this to go away ; can someone advise?

    I'm using the newest version of Ubuntu, The system is brand new its a 2nd gen INTEL i5 2510. It happens every 5 minutes, the cursor will be frozen and not respond for 2-3 seconds.

    I'm thinking hardware. Are you using the touchpad or USB mouse? If the latter, try another USB port or another mouse (or try the mouse in another computer). Do you have another operating system on the computer?
    Give me a stable operating system, and I will make it unstable

    it happens on live USB's for Linux mint and Fedora 15 too. The mouse just times out for a few seconds and I cant move the cursor. Happens on the Trackpoint and the touchpad

    Then it does sound like hardware. I never had both a trackpoint and touchpad. I wonder if they could be fighting each other. Can you disable the one you use less?

    Hi dude, I have exactly the same problem, the mouse cursor freezes, and i have to unplug the mouse and plug it to make the mouse work again. Btw, nothing appears in the logs about this mouse issue.
    So i opened a question in launchpad:

    Re: mouse cursor freezes intermittently Thinkpad Laptop

    I am having the same problem using openSuse on a ThinkPad Edge 11. As far as I could see the problem might be related to the process 'kseriod' which seems to use a lot of cpu every time my mouse-pad freezes. Maybe this can help finding a solution to the problem...


    I would highly appreciate any hints...



    Thanks,

    Chris
