http://ubuntuforums.org – Good day, I have been tremendously frustrated by my mouse freezing randomly, this is often followed by a total system freeze. It is a usb microsoft mouse. When the mouse freezes, the LED is still lit. If I unplug and replug in the mouse then it is completely dead (no light). This freeze occurs completely randomly but most often shortly after the desktop loads at startup. The freeze always forces me to cut power from my machine and reboot. Sometimes I have to reboot several times before the freezing stops. There are occasions when I can use the computer for almost a whole day without an issu (Hardware)
