How about some console messages (/var/log/message should contain them) concerning the mouse? As well as a "uname -a"?

We violently need more information to even begin considering to help.

console messages for the mouse... the ones that appear (on the console coincidentally) when you plug in the mouse... also the ones that might be appearing when ums disconnects.

Obviously, you are not running at the console or you would see them... you will most likely find a record of them in /var/log/messages and/or in the output of dmesg.

I have done a lot of reading on this issue and wish I could say I found a good solution. The problem seems to have existed for a while and it likely still does exist. If you want, you may be interested in looking at the following:

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=kern/32713

This is a PR report detailing the issue back in 4.4 -- it has been suspended for feedback because they are not sure the issue still exists. You may want to submit feedback saying you believe it does and detail your problem.

Now -- trying some temporary solutions ... because obviously knowing it is a problem isn't fixing it for you.

Is this only an issue after the computer has been idle for a while? [1]

[1] NO: then the original PR definitly relates to your problem and you'll probably want to jump on the official mailing lists for further help.

[1] YES: Do you have the computer configured to suspend (sleep) after a certain amount of time? [2]

[2] NO: Have you enabled ACPI -- I believe it is off by default for 4.x but that might have changed for 4.10? [3]

[3] YES: Turn off ACPI (either at boot or by rebuilding the kernel to not include it) -- does the problem go away? [4]

[4] NO: Contact the mailing lists and describe what is going on.

[4] YES: Good.

[3] NO: Contact the mailing lists and describe what is going on.

-- This describes, roughly, the order I would go about approaching this. It might be incomplete or completely off base. But this is what I am guessing at from here.
