Cyborg R.A.T. 7 USB mouse randomly stops working
(To start off, I've Googled the *bleep* out of this and already have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/rat7.conf file that contains

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "R.A.T."
MatchProduct "R.A.T.7|R.A.T.9"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Option "Buttons" "17"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 4 5 0 0 8 9 7 6 12 0 0 0 16 17"
Option "AutoReleaseButtons" "13 14 15"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
Option "YAxisMapping" "10 11"


Other than my parenthetical above remark, the subject line pretty much says it all. This mouse works just fine, until it doesn't. Attempting to restart the X server via Cntl-Alt-Backspace results in a hung system. (I'm also running the proprietary NVIDIA binary driver on my system, which probably doesn't help.)

I've got a Logitech Marble Wheel Trackball attached to my system so when the R.A.T. 7 locks up, I still have a working mouse. There's nothing of any use in /var/log/Xorg.0.log or ~/.xsession-errors.

Does anyone else in the forum have this problem?

Yeah, a friend of mine has the same problem, well a similar problem. He has a mouse that every in a while just hangs or move reeeally slowly, then, after a while, it return back to his normal behaviour.. The wired thing is that it's working perfectly in windows on the same box so it's not an hardware issue.
Unfortunately we didn't come out with a solution..

Try to disable USB autosuspend.

Thanks for the advice, but I'm afraid that didn't work either.
