    12.04 wireless mouse problem on brand new laptop

    Hey all,

    So I'm having a really odd problem with my wireless mouse on a fresh install of 12.04.

    First the hardware:

    The laptop is a new Dell XPS 14 (L421x), an Ivy Bridge i7 processor, with USB3, Intel 4000 graphics with dedicated nVidia graphics as well.

    The mouse is a Logitech Revolution w/ 'darkfield' (i.e. - it works on glass)


    Now, the problem:

    Upon a boot, the receiver is indeed listed in lsusb. However, often the mouse doesn't show up in xinput --list, though sometimes it does (maybe 1 in 5 boots). Additionally, often after a suspend/resume cycle, the mouse will disappear from xinput --list

    Now, the odd part:

    By unplugging and replugging the mouse a few times (sometimes just once, sometimes 5-6 times), I can get it to show back up in the xinput --list


    lsusb output:
    Code:
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 8087:07da Intel Corp.
    xinput --list output when the mouse is working:

        ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys                        	id=13	[slave  keyboard (3)]

    The wiredness continues! After a resume, the x11 virtual pointer still shows up in xinput --list, but the mouse dosen't work!

    Any ideas or additional info?

    Thanks!
