mouse and computer hesitates


every once in a while my computer begins to freeze for a bit. The mouse hesitates and I have to wait till it reengages. Rebooting solves the problem but I would like to know how to avoid this. Am I running too many processes or something? Thanks for the help ]

What's your processor speed?

You probably have too much stuff starting up which is useless

What distro you running?

Are you sure that it is not your mouse?

I had a similar sounding problem with an MS Intellimouse on my Mac G4, at first I thought that the drivers must have become damaged or something, but I found the same problem with this particular mouse on different platforms - It was the mouse USB lead at fault.

Or maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree?

In Red Hat's or KDE's or whatever window manager you are using, in their control center there should be something about process's starting up, well along those lines, or take a look here...geeez i have forgotten the file which contains the startup services sorry.....i'm sure someone else can help...

Good luck
