USB mouse hangs about once a day, needs to be replugged


Hu guys,

I've got a problem with my Dell optical USB mouse (under Fedora Core 2 & 2.6.7 Kernel).

It's quite random, but about once a day it just completely freezes up. The problem is solved by diving under my desk, unplugging it and then replugging it.

Anyboy encountered this before? Below is the tail of /var/log/messages

Cheers,

Tim

Hmmmm

The mouse and computer are only 3 weeks old though!

Maybe I should ask Dell about this one

I have a similar problem. I used to run mandrake 10 on my laptop. Every time i ran drakconf i had to unplug the mouse and plug it back in again. Not a majot headache. today i put FC2 on my laptop. Now the usb mouse fails about every 10 seconds. HELP! It's being a major PITA.
