Mouse Takes a While to Wake Up
I have a Microsoft Optical USB mouse which works fine in Slack except I have to wake it up every session. When I bootup or restart the X server, I have to move the mouse around for awhile until it wakes up and starts working. It will remain stuck until I move it around for awhile. Any way to fix that?

Hii, i'm afraid this happens with all the USB mouses ... I have a Logitech MX310 and i have to move up for about 3 seconds before it actually starts to work ... If anyone have a clue on how to solve this, pleasee help us. :)

I fixed it! In your XF86config file look for Imput Device for your mouse and edit it like so:

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "5"

That should do the trick.

What did it look like before that caused the problem?

Was it protocol set to "Auto" ?
I've never experienced this with my Logitech USB Optical.

Yeah, it was set to auto. I had to set it to IMPS/2 to get imwheel working so the wheel on my mouse would work and it fixed the sticking pointer problem too.
