I have and use two desktops. Same mouse for both, but have issues on one. Neither are networked, currently don't have internet access for either. Don't any viruses - yes I'm sure. W7 on both. Issue; I can use the mouse for 1 maybe 2 hours without issue, then it will freeze; can't click on anything on desktop, except to shutdown. If I reboot it will be fine for about 1 or 2 hours. Device manager says device is working properly, and like I said, I don't have any issues on the other pc. the only thing that may have caused this that I can think of, is I deleted ADW cleaner, a program which I liked, but without access to internet, could no longer keep it updated and didn't need it anymore. Its a program that doesn't have an "uninstall" heading in the uninstall program section. I suppose I could try to "restore" to prior the occurrence, but thought I'd see what any of you might have to suggest. any thoughts? Thanks. Dave.

Interesting.

Can you step me through your moving from computer #1 to computer #2 with the same mouse?

Thanks

Where is the mouse plugged in??  A USB port or the PS2 type mini-plug?  Some software will disable (sleep/hibernate) some device after a period of inactivity.

Dicke, I have to unplug everything from one and reconnect to the other. Yeah a bit of a pain. I have a usb mouse. MJD420nova suggested something I hadn't thought of and will have to check that out. Its just weird that this only recently started to occur with one. Haven't tried a restore yet, but I'm going to try to look into the sleep/hibernate thing first. Thanks all for responding.

We'll be here when you need us.

I've found that when you change a configuration - add or remove devices - it's best to reboot so that the system generates a new inventory of what's connected. Might try it that way before you make too many changes which may make the problem worse.
