USB Mouse disconnects shortly after startup.
I have a new laptop.
Mandrake 10, used a couple USB logitech mice.
Upon booting with the mouse attached, the mouse will work for a couple minutes, and then simply stop. I haven't done anything to install the mouse, just attached it. The touchpad also doesn't work on startup, but if I disable/enable it, it works. The working of the touchpad seems entirely indepenendant of the working of the mouse.
When the mouse ceases to work, there is a syslog entry something like the following:
kernel: input: PS/2 Generic Mouse on isaXXXX/serioX
