Subject: [gentoo-user] Mouse dies after a few minutes
Date: Thu, 13 Feb 2014 17:08:19
1 Hi all,
2 I'm running a 64 bit KDE setup in a laptop. In the last few days, the
3 mouse has become erratic and in fact dies after a bit of usage.
5 When KDE fires up, and I'm presented with the login dialogue, the mouse
6 will work for a few seconds, up to 30 say, then it freezes. If I get in
7 quick and enter the username/password, the mouse pointer will change
8 from the black login pointer to a slightly different shaped white
9 pointer and then freeze. The login process will continue and present me
10 with my environment, but no mouse. A Cntl-Alt-Del will bring up the Log
11 out/shutdown/restart dialogue and I can use the keyboard to select
12 either shutdown or restart.
14 The thing that is "freaky" is that this happens if the laptop is
15 running from batteries. If I have the machine plugged into the wall,
16 this problem does not exist.
18 Has anyone come across a problem like this? Any thoughts, greatly
19 appreciated.
21 Andrew
