Mouse freezing up.
Can anyone tell me what is happening? Twice now, the all of the functions of the mouse stop working. I am using SuSe p.2 Pro and the KDE desktop. The problem
happens when I come back to the computer after a long time. The computer was in suspend mode and when KDE comes back up, the mouse does not respond. The keyboard is still functional but without the mouse, I can do very little. I used the keybord to TAB through open applications and to save and then close them.
I know about the problems about delayed writes to disk
so I waited a while and then pluued the plug to force a reboot. Pulling the plug, of course, was done as a last resort only. I did a disk check just to make certain that there were no problems. I have a few questions...
1. What is causing the mouse problem?
2. How can I fix it?
3. How do I shutdown gracefully if I am in a GUI and
have only the keyboard?
