USB Mouse Problems
My USB Wired Mouse randomly "turns off" throughout the day. Just trying to figure out some things that i can do to fix this problem, as you can imagine it is very frustrating while playing online games etc. I am pretty sure that its some sort of power problem. When i first get on my computer its fine for about 1-2 hours, then it will start turning off for like 2-3 seconds at a time.
I have tried another optical mouse, and it also turns off, so i believe it is something to do with the computer. Is it just that there is not enough power from the computer or can it be something else? If the power is a problem would a USB Hub 100% fix the problem?

you have another thread going at Please do not start duplicate threads on the same subject, as it can get confusing as to what's been tried and what has not. Closing this one. If you need the other one moved, just report it and as that it be moved to the correct forum.
